Tarn Taran, July 23

The Punjab State Schedule Castes Commission has taken a note of the alleged atrocities committed on a Dalit family in Raspulpur village, 6 km from here. A member of the family was forced to drink urine by a group of around 40 persons.

The commission was approached by Kulwinder Kaur, wife of victim Dial Singh, whose half-acre land had been forcibly acquired by Ranjodh Singh of the same village.

The commission, in its report, said Ranjodh Singh and his associates came to the field of the victim on July 17 and passed casteist remarks. They abducted Dial Singh and took him to an undisclosed location where he was forced to consume urine and was beaten up. The commission has instructed the police to register a case under the SC/ST Act and inform the panel regarding it. —OC
