NCSC officials hold inquiry into attack on Dalits

The National Commission for today held an inquiry with a few families, alleged victims of caste discrimination and violence in Periya Thadagam on the city outskirts recently.

Around 30 Dalits were attacked allegedly by 17 Caste Hindus for refusing to play a musical instrument during the 'Vinayaka Chathurthi' festial on September 7 and six were hospitalised with injuries.

Though a case was registered against the Caste Hindus, no arrests have been made so far, citing which the families petitioned the District Collector and expressed their willingness to move out of the area.

Taking cognizance of the matter, Research Officer of the commission, Chandraprabha and Investigative Officer S Lister the families as part of the inquiry.

The officials would submit their report to the district Collector later, police said.
