A 3-member team of National SC/ST Commission visited Bhatta Parsaul
today, the site of clashes between police and farmers protesting for
enhanced land compensation which left 4 dead, to probe charges of
atrocities against dalits by the security forces.

The team, led by Commission Chairman Dr PL Punia, interacted with the
alleged victims today about the May 7 incident. The process will
continue for four more days.

The majority of SC residents from the two villages told the team that
no atrocity had been committed on them, they said.

An NHRC team also recorded the statements of alleged victims today.
