Ballabhgarh, Oct. 21 : Communist Party of India (Marxist) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat on Wednesday lashed out at the M.L. Khattar-led BJP Government in Haryana over the caste violence in Ballabhgarh, in which two children were burnt alive, and said there could be a conspiracy behind the unfortunate incident.
“The entire nation is saddened by this incident. This shows total failure of the administration, where was the police that night? Jitender (children’s father) told me that the police personnel had gone to watch jagran when the incident took place. How did it take place exactly at the time when no policeman was there, there is a possibility of a conspiracy,” Karat told ANI.
“What kind of callousness is this that, the Haryana Chief Minister did not even visit this family after the two children were killed in the violence,” she added.
Two children of a Dalit family died and their parents suffered burn injuries yesterday after their home was set on fire, allegedly by upper-caste Rajputs in Sunpedh village near Faridabad.
Tension gripped the locality yesterday after the incident.
The mother of the children is battling for life at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital. (ANI)
