In what reminds of gory tales of the feudal medieval India, a 52-year-old Dalit woman, Dhuli Devi and her 15-year-old daughter Ramkanya were stripped in full public view at Sayar village under Sarwar tehsil in the district on Monday evening. The eight-member family was assaulted and thrown out of the village. Reason: Dhuli and her family members resisted a few powerful Jat co-villagers, when they tried to take away Ramkanya forcibly.
Thrown out of village, the tormented family members with six children had been sitting in front of the office of the deputy superintendent of police in Sarwar since then. So frightened is the family that they have refused to go back to village, considering it more unsafe after they had approached the police. Head of the family, Satnarayan Kamad, rues: "We can’t go back as none is there to help us and people will kill us."
The police have registered a case against the two accused identified as Banalal Dhakad and Jasraj Dakad under Sections 323 and 333 of the IPC and the duo is still at large.
