New Delhi: The Congress on Friday hit out at the Haryana police over the killing of another Dalit youth, this time in Gohana, saying that what were the people supposed to do when the ‘protectors become the predators’.
“The rampant jungle raj in Haryana is alarming and it is also unfortunate that the cops against whom the FIR’s have been lodged have not been arrested. Had it been a Dalit against whom an FIR was filed then he would have been nabbed that very night. Clearly, law and order has gone for a toss in Haryana,” Congress leader PL Punia told ANI.
Punia who is also the head of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) said that he has taken suo moto cognizance of the incident.
A 15-year-old Dalit boy’s dead body was found in Gohana district of Harayana which led to angry protests by the villagers while the kin of the boy have accused the police of killing him.
The situation remains tense in Gohana and there also have been clashes between the police and the villagers. (ANI)
