Dalit girl beaten up in MP as her shadow falls on ‘upper caste’ man

The incident took place on June 13, 2015 and the complaint was also filed on the same day at Gadi Malhera police station.

In a shocking incident, a minor Dalit girl was allegedly beaten up by “upper caste” women in Ganeshpura village in Chattarpur after the victim’s shadow fell on a pehalwan (muscleman) belonging to their family, police said on Tuesday.

The incident took place on June 13, 2015 and the complaint was also filed on the same day at Gadi Malhera police station, Additional Superintendent of Police Neeraj Pandey said.

According to the complaint lodged by the girl’s father, trouble started when his daughter was fetching water from a hand pump and her shadow fell on the muscleman Puran Yadav when he happened to pass through there, the ASP said.

The episode enraged the family of the muscleman to such an extent that the women of the family severely beat the girl up and threatened that if she was spotted again at the hand pump, they would kill her, he said.

Mr. Yadav’s family also prevented the victim from going to police station. But the girl’s family somehow managed to reach there.

A case under sections 323, 341, 506 of the IPC has been registered against the accused and further investigation is underway.
