HC seeks reply from UP govt on  atrocities against Dalit women

Taking a serious note of alleged parading of four Dalit women naked in Shahjahanpur district recently, the Allahabad High Court today sought to know from Uttar Pradesh government what action it has taken against those who were responsible for the atrocity.

 A division bench, comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice M K Gupta, passed the order on a Public Interest Litigation filed by Sakshi Verma and some other law interns who drew the court’s attention to the incident that had taken place on Sunday at Hareva village of the district.

The incident had taken place following the elopement of a Dalit boy with a girl belonging to an OBC caste.

The girl’s furious family members had allegedly attacked the women belonging to the boy’s community, stripped them and paraded them through the village. The court has fixed May 21 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
