Dalit smeared with cow dung

Members of the upper-caste Jat community smeared cow dung on the face of a Dalit family residing in Mujadpur village in Haryana’s Hisar district on Sunday.

Cow dung was forcibly stuffed inside the mouth of the head of the Dalit family, Ramdhari, who along with his daughter were also beaten in the melee. Tension gripped the village following the incident.

The provocation was over a statue of Bhim Rao Ambedkar that the Dalit family had installed at their house. The village is Jat dominated and at least seven villages adjoining Mujadpur have Jats in majority, Ashok Kumar, elder son of the victim said.
