Meira Kumar visits Dalit victims of I-Day attack in hospital

Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar on Sunday visited  Dalits injured for defying a diktat and unfurling the national flag at the site of a temple in Baddi village in Bihar’s Rohtas district, at a hospital in Sasaram, the district headquarters of Rohtas.

She called the attack ‘unacceptable’ and asked for strong legal action against the guilty. Kumar, who represents Sasaram in Parliament, also asked the society to introspect on caste violence.

A Dalit man was stoned to death 40 others were seriously injured, including old women and children, on Independence Day. The upper-caste men attacked the Dalits after they allegedly defied a diktat not to unfurl the flag in front of a temple of Guru Ravidas, a prominent lower-caste saint.
