STAFF WRITER 18:50 HRS IST
Chandigarh, Apr 22 (PTI) Tension prevailed in Mirchpur village of
Haryana, where assailants set afire houses of Dalits killing a
physically challenged girl and her father, as BSP today demanded a CBI
probe into the incident.
"We apprehend a deep-rooted conspiracy behind the incident and demand
a CBI probe into it. The gruesome incident happened in the presence of
police and district administration officials who failed to protect the
hapless Dalits from being targeted," BSP general secretary Man Singh
Manhera told PTI over phone from Hisar.
Members of a particular community raided the village yesterday and set
afire some 12 to 15 Dalit houses due to old enmity. 18-year-old Suman
was charred to death while her father Tara Chand, 70, who suffered 90
per cent burns, died later, officials said, adding 25 people have been
arrested in connection with the arson.
