New Delhi, October 16

Around 15 Dalit outfits submitted a memorandum to the National Commission for Scheduled Castes on Saturday demanding stringent action against those who killed a man and tied his body to an overturned police barricade at the farmers’ protest site in Singhu.

The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35, from Punjab’s Taran Taran, was found tied to an overturned police barricade at the site where farmers are protesting against the three Central farm laws for over 10 months. His body bore over 10 wounds caused by sharp-edged weapons.

The incident is being blamed on a group of Nihangs.

As many as 15 Dalit outfits, which included the Akhil Bharatiya Khatik Samaj, Akhil Bharatiya Berwa Vikas Sangh, Dhanak Welfare Association and other organisations of Dalit employees and professionals submitted the memorandum to National Scheduled Castes Commission Chairman Vijay Sampla.

They urged the panel to ensure that this gory incident be fairly investigated and stringent punishment for culprits be ensured.

Political parties across the board have condemned this incident and demanded a thorough probe.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes on Friday asked Haryana Police to take strict action against those behind the killing of the Dalit man at the farmers’ protest venue.

Sampla also sought a preliminary report from Haryana Police within 24 hours. PTI
