Dalit Man, Who Objected to Hanuman Chalisa in Schools, Killed After Brawl Over Ambedkar Poster
In some other case of caste violence in Rajasthan, a 21-year-old Dalit guy succumbed to accidents sustained in an attack through a gaggle of guys belonging to an OBC neighborhood.
In step with a record through The Indian Specific, Vinod Bamnia, who used to be a member of Bhim Military, used to be assaulted on June five close to his house in Kikraliya village of Rajasthan’s Hanumangarh district, and died in a sanatorium in Sriganganagar two days later.
The FIR states that the accused allegedly shouted casteist slurs all through the attack, and mentioned: “Aaj tumhe tumhara Ambedkarvad yaad dilvayenge. The Bhim Military staged a protest in opposition to “police inactivity” within the case.
In step with the Indian Specific record, Bamnia had registered lawsuits two times previous this 12 months on other problems — one in April on receiving risk calls after he objected to copies of the Hanuman Chalisa being dispensed at a college, and some other naming a number of village citizens for allegedly attacking him and his circle of relatives for objecting to a highway block.
The preliminary FIR within the attack used to be registered through police beneath IPC sections 307 (try to homicide), 323 (punishment for voluntarily inflicting harm), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) and 143 (punishment for illegal Meeting) — and sections of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
After Vinod’s demise, the fee of try to homicide used to be modified to homicide beneath IPC segment 302. Hanumangarh SP Preeti Jain mentioned “it’s flawed to mention there used to be police inactivity because the arrests had been made promptly after the incident”.
