5-member panel to solve Barwala case
TNN, Apr 16, 2011, 01.50am IST

CHANDIGARH: Taking a serious note on the prevailing tension between
different groups of village Bataur, in the Barwala block of Panchkula
district, the administration has formed a 5 member committee under the
chairmanship of sub divisional magistrate KK Kalson, on Friday.

Deputy commissioner Ashima Brar, stated that other members of the
committee included deputy superintendent of police (HQ) Panchkula,
naib tehsildar Barwala, block development and panchayat officer (BDPO)
Barwala and SHO police station Chandimandir. The committee would try
to resolve the issue by taking the two groups into confidence, she
added. It is notable that the Rajputs in the village were not allowing
Dalits to cultivate their land besides abusing their women folk and
not allowing them to take work in nearby villages. Dalits of Bataur
village who had complained against the Rajputs to deputy commissioner
and block development officer, over income from shamlat (common) land,
were facing repression from a particular community, as they do not
have jobs and their women are called by casteist names. Not only this,
their usual routes of going in and out of the village have been
changed and children have been forced to stay indoors during evening.
