Shackled to caste system: Dalit girl faces violence as her shadow falls on high caste man


By NewsGram Staff Writer

In yet another appalling incident of caste discrimination, a minor Dalit girl was allegedly beaten up in Ganeshpura village, in Chattarpur after the victim’s shadow fell on a muscleman belonging to a higher caste.

As reported by a news agency, the incident happened on June 13 and the complaint was also filed on the same day at Gadi Malhera police station.

The Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Neeraj Pandey told PTI that the problem began when the girl was fetching water from the village hand pump and her shadow fell on muscle-man Puran Yadav, who belongs to a higher caste when he was passing through that place.

The incident angered the family of Yadav so much, that the women of the family beat the girl severely. They also threatened her that if she was spotted again at the hand pump, they would kill her.

Yadav’s family also restrained the victim’s family from going to police station, but they somehow managed to reach there and file a complaint.

As reported by PTI, a case under sections 323, 341, 506 of the IPC has been registered against the accused and further investigation is underway.
