Dalit Man Beaten in Haryana for Refusing to Work in Farm, Two Held
In yet another incidence of caste-based violence, a Dalit man can be seen being beaten in a video which has surfaced reportedly almost a month after the incident took place.
The deed took place in Bajana Kalan village in Haryana's Sonipat.
The man, a 19-year old, reportedly refused to work in the field of the accused and thus got into a dispute with them. The victim's father lodged a complaint with the police following the incident.
“When my son refused, they held him captive for around four hours in a room near their property. Mohit and Jitendra told him to remove his clothes, following which they assaulted him while recording the incident on their mobile phone. He was warned of dire consequences if he shared his ordeal with others. Fearing further attacks from the two, my son has been staying in Delhi for the last 20 days,” the complaint read, according to an NDTV report.
The police said the arrests were delayed as a complaint had not been lodged.
