On 25 September, two Dalit children, aged 10 and 12, were beaten to death in a village in Madhya Pradesh’s Shivpuri district, allegedly because they were found defecating in the open.

A police source said that Hakim Yadav, one of the accused, said he killed the kids as God had commanded him in his dream to kill “demons”.
