All the accused went to the farm of dalit women Manju Devi on 09/12/2011 at 9 AM, to encroach it illegally, and started destroying it. When she came to know, she along with her above said neighbor women went to the farm and tried to stop the mob that started destroying the farm
The accused mob circled the 6 dalit women and abused them in filthy language, on the name of their caste and attacked them by lathi danda and guns. All the 6 dalit women shocked and asked them why they are destroying the farm. The irritated mob had beaten all the women. Due to this two women went unconscious. One woman Dulari Devi’s both hands fractured, they also snatched the gold rings worth of 15000/- (Fifteen Thousand Rupees)
Satan Sada the husband of Manju Devi reached the place and requested for compromise. The accused mercilessly looted Rs 10000/-(Ten Thousand) from him at gun point. The accused number 1, Saroj Singh fired a bullet on Satan Sada, fortunately it missed
The Accused 2 Anoj Singh and Accused 3 Manoj Singh both sexually harassed Pabiya Devi and Parodevi; they removed Sarees and blouses of both dalit women and paraded nakedly. And they spit in the mouths of dalit women. Now all the victims admitted in the Sadar Hospital in Khagaria.
The victims lodged a complaint in the Morkahi Police Station; FIR is registered number 80/2011 under section 147, 148, 149, 342, 323, 325, 504 of Indian penal code and Section 3 (i) (ii) (iii), (iv), (x), (xi) of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1987. The station house officer Sathyendra Kumar took up the investigation
Even after a month of incident, neither an inquiry is conducted nor the accused arrested by the police, due to the political influence of the Accused. And meanwhile the accused regularly calling and sending mediators to victims and threatening to withdraw the complaint by saying that “police and other government officials not going to help the victims, nothing will happen to accused” police only serve the rich people not poor like you”.
The Dalits in this locality are feeling panic after this brutal attack on the dalit women so werequest National Human Rights Commission to visit the Nararia village of Khagaria district in Bihar. And conduct an inquiry in this case, to give moral support to the victims and local dalits
