AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF UTTAR
Respected Madam ,
Name of victims:
1. Mr. Virendra Sonkar son of Mr. Ramdhani Sonkar
2. Ms. Sunita, wife of Virendra Sonkar
(Both are residents of Shankarpur village, Chaubepur Police Station,
Name of the victims:
1. Mr. Mithailal alias Mithairam, son of Mr. Ramdhani
2. Mr. Balkaran nephew of Mithailal
(Both are residents of Gaurdih village, Chaubepur Police Station,
[Mr. Praveen Yadav, who is the Officer-in-Charge of Chaubepur Police Station,
I am writing to you to express my concern about the three cases of atrocities committed against the dalit community in
I am informed that in the first case Mr. Virendra Sonkar son of Mr. Ramdhani Sonkar and his wife Ms. Sunita was assaulted by Mr. Manoj Yadav son of Nakhdu Yadav, Mr. Rajesh Yadav son of Shyam Narayan Yadav and Mr. Vinod Yadav son of Nakhdu Yadav. The incident was started off by the perpetrators intentionally destroying Virendra’s cultivation, which when opposed was silenced by the perpetrators abusing and assaulting the victims, whereby they suffered injuries.
The second case reported from the same village, though it happened in April, before the change of the government, was an incident that was triggered off after a request for water from the common tube-well in the village. In this case the assailants named above, again from the Yadav community, assaulted the father, mother and the child. All the three were injured in the incident.
In the third case the members of the Yadav community from Gaurdih village assaulted Mithailal and his nephew Mr. Balkaran because Mithailal’s cow had walked into the land of one Mr. Savaru Yadav. The arguments, between the victim Mr. Mithailal and the owner of the land Mr. Savaru, resulted in an incident where Mithailal and his nephew were attacked by the Yadavs of the village.
I am concerned about the pattern of these three incidents where individuals of the dalit community in the villages are assaulted by groups from the Yadav community. From the facts of these three cases it is also evident that the situation within the villages that are dominated by the Yadav caste must be tense, particularly after the defeat of the former government which was led by the Yadav leader. The incidents are also a probable reflection of the Yadav or the upper caste community and its apprehension of an increasing dalit resistance in villages. In this context I also wish to bring to your notice the fact that from Shankarpur village in the past there had been reported cases of starvation deaths.
I am also surprised to know that the Station House Officer of Chaubepur Police Station and the Senior Superintendent of Police,
I therefore urge you to immediately inquire into the matter and take the following actions:
1. To order an immediate inquiry by the local police against the incidents reported to them regarding the cases mentioned above and to charge the perpetrators named above for the crimes they have committed; 2. To inquire into why the local police failed to take any action in the three cases and; 3. To provide protection for the victims in the case.
I trust that your intervention will be forthcoming in this matter.
