A Dalit teen was trashed on Thursday by two arrogant upper caste men in Bhavda village of Daskroi taluka in Ahmedabad district.
The 15-year-old innocent teen was beaten up because the boy’s father refused to clean out the dead bodies of cattle in the village, police reported.
Two persons were arrested after the boy’s father, Dinesh Parmar, lodged an FIR against them. Kanbha police station officer Govindbhai Parmar told that a case has been registered under the Prevention of Atrocities (Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes) Act, besides other provisions of the Indian Penal Code.
Dinesh Parmar, the person who filed a complaint told the police that his son Harsh, a standard 10 student, was sitting with a friend in their colony Vankarvas when the two accused, Sahil Thakore and Sarvarkhan Pathan, from the same village went there.
They started abusing Harsh for his father had refused to remove the dead body of the animal. Earlier, Dalits participated in Dalit Asmita Yatra and they pledged that they won’t remove any dead animal body. They will defy doing everything which some people think is what they are meant to do.
“Removing carcasses was our traditional work but after the Una incident, I took a pledge to give it up. I now depend solely on the daily wages I earn for a living,” said Dinesh Parmar.
This happened even after the statements and remakrs made by Prime Minister Modi and the condemn of every Dalit atrocities all over the India.
The government need to take actions against these self-proclaimed Gau Rakshaks. There has to be a limit to the sufferings of Dalit in India.
