Unabated atrocities against Dalit, poor sections intolerable: Harsh
NPP submits memo to Div Com, Jammu
10/1/2020 12:07:05 AM
JAMMU, Sep 30: Alleging unabated harassment and humiliation of Dalits and other marginalized sections by the influential and powerful people in Chenani and Ramnagar constituency, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and former Minister has urged upon the Lt Governor and Divisional Commissioner Jammu to set up a high level panel to probe all cases of atrocities, assaults and other offences committed against the weaker sections in the said areas.
He said that the recent episodes of assault on Dalits and their humiliation and disparagement had sparked massive outrage in the said constituencies which unfortunately failed to elect the requisite response from helmsmen. It was further queer to note that rather than apprehending the culprits and taking appropriate action against them under law, the district administration had chosen to invoke Sec 144 CRPC to stop the people from even exercising their fundamental rights of peaceful protest and holding processions.
In a memorandum submitted to Divisional Commissioner Jammu today, Singh demanded immediate action against officers and other criminal elements for innumerable cases of atrocities and maltreatment of weaker sections in Chenani and Ramnagar constituency. He said that Latti tehsil HQ and adjoining areas were observing bandhs and protests for several days against the extremely offensive and humiliating conduct of the Tehsildar Latti against the Dalits and other poor people. Several SC category employees had complained of harassment by the said Tehsildar in the name of caste beside use of abusive, filthy language against the entire community.
Not only that the CD Block Chairperson of Block Chanunta Gita Devi, an SC lady, was abused in the name of caste and derogatory language used against her. And despite police complaints the police officers were shielding the culprits for extraneous considerations. Similarly another SC chairperson of CD Block Parli Dhar Neelam Devi was assaulted, abused and threatened by some notorious criminals but no cognizance was taken by the police allegedly for vested interests and monetary considerations.
Singh further pointed out in the memorandum the gruesome episodes of brutal assassination of over a dozen poor people in Ramnagar mostly Dalits with no breakthrough having been made by the police in the said cases.
