'Dalit atrocities on rise in state'

L Murugan, vice-president of the National Scheduled Castes Commission, expressed concern on Wednesday that atrocities on Dalits were on the rise in Karnataka.  

At a press conference here, he said, "People belonging to the upper castes have encroached upon land given to them by the government at Tippanala in Koppal district. The recent rape of a Dalit student in Vijayapura made national headlines. The government must ensure that such incidents do not recur."
