Gonda, April 17: Exposing a yet another case of social apathy for poor and backward class, 18-year-old Dalit teen has committed suicide after he was socially boycotted by the villagers.

The boy was allegedly found to be responsible for the killing of his pet calf reported as per the report by Indian Express. The police had found Ramu’s body on a railway track on Saturday and they suspect that he committed a suicide by jumping in front of a train after hearing the news of boycott by the villagers.

Station House Officer said, “He [Ramu] had come to know that villagers had decided to socially boycott him for killing his pet calf.”

The teen’s family has neither filed a complaint and nor found  a suicide note.

Reportedly it was a part of the village’s custom to punish a person accused of killing a cow or a calf by making them live alone outside the village for a year.

Ramu had hit his pet calf with a hammer while taking the animal to the field for grazing. He had tied animal in the field and returned home. Around two hours later, Ramu came to know through locals that calf had died because of the thrashing…,” said a villager.

Following the incident, the villagers decided to socially boycott the boy till the Panchayat reach a decision.

With unprecedented winning of saffron party in Uttar Pradesh, cow protection and cow slaughter ban has come to the forefront of local and national politics in the state and many of the BJP ruled states.

Recently a Muslim Cattle fielder was lynched to death when cow protectors suspected him as a cattle trader.

It is strange how movement against saving a life of an animal is taking toll on human life!
