People's Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) and Caritas India in collaboration with PUCL, NCDHR, Dalit Social Forum, DASHRA and Manav Adhikar Patrika are organizing a Public Hearing on 17 May, 2013 at 10 am in A.N. Sinha Institute of Social Studies, North Gandhi Maidan, Patna to deal with various issues related to abuses and atrocities committed against the most marginalized sections of the society especially scheduled castes or the Mahadalits by various state agencies. 

The need to ensure dignity and justice to the most marginalized section especially Mahadalits in the state has motivated the human rights organizations, civil society groups, legal experts, and academicians to come together to a public  platform to voice their concerns. The specific objective of this hearing is to highlight and present a systematic account and assessment of the discrimination, gross prejudices and atrocities suffered by the marginalized section of the society. 

Today, Bihar is not only considered the most backward state in India. The cases of human rights' violation in the state during the last four years under different categories are increasing at an alarming rate for realization of rule of law at grass-root level. Acute social disparities, extreme poverty and discrimination largely accentuate the violations against the marginalized section especially Dalits, women, poor and landless.

The public hearing will be inaugurated by the Chief Guest Shri C.K Tyagi, Presenting Officer, National Human Rights Commission. The hearing will consist of a panelist from prominent academicians, former police officials, members of civil society organizations and Human Rights Defenders in front of whom the victims would provide necessary testimonies about their problems. A total of 30 cases will be deposited along with the testimonies of other experts on the topic. The fact of the violation reporting will be shared to the various concerned authorities such as at state level, human rights institutions etc. along with the panelist recommendation.
