Dalit atrocities in Lalitpur: NHRC demands report

Anti Torture Initiative, Anti Violence Initiative, Campaign

Taking a note of complaints of alleged atrocities on Dalits in Bundelkhand’s Lalitpur district, the national human rights commission (NHRC) has sought a report from the state government.

The commission has also asked its director general (investigation) to send a factfinding team to Lalitpur to probe into the matter.

The issue of alleged harassment of Dalits in the form of caste-based discrimination, sexual exploitation and untouchability in the region was brought to the notice of the NHRC by an NGO - People’s Vigilance Committee of Human Rights (PVCHR) - working in Bundelkhand.

“The situation is alarming. Dalits are not allowed to wear shoes in front of upper caste people in rural areas of Lalitpur,” alleged Dr Lenin Raghuvanshi, chairman, PVCHR.
