Three Dalits thrashed for ‘objecting to casteist slur’
Three Dalits were allegedly thrashed by four men for objecting to their casteist slur in a village near Una town in Gujarat’s Gir Somnath district, police said Friday. The incident comes over two years after four Dalit men were flogged by cow vigilantes in the same district. The incident took place at Nandrakh village, about 400km from Ahmedabad, on Thursday. No arrests have been made yet, police said. The complaint was filed by one of the victims, Manu Solanki who has claimed that one of the accused Ajit Gohil, was arrested for his involvement in the 2016 Una flogging case and is currently out on bail.
