Abohar, September 14

Hundreds of men and women today staged a dharna outside the police station in Khuyiansarwer village demanding action on the complaint of Santosh Kumar.

Santosh Kumar of Haripura village, a Dalit, alleged that an influential farmer had abducted his wife and two children sometime back. When he protested and approached the family of the culprit, the latter’s henchmen allegedly detained him, and tortured him.

Complainant Santosh has named six persons, but the police have not arrested any of them so far, as the latter have political connections.

SHO said action would be taken against whoever was found guilty. — OC
