Concerned over the killing of two children of a Dalit family in a suspected inter-caste clash, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today asked Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Khattar to ensure security to everyone and prevent any recurrence of such incident.

In a telephonic conversation with the Chief Minister, the Union Minister expressed concern over the killing of the two children of a Dalit family in Haryana's Faridabad district early today.

"The Union Home Minister asked the Chief Minister to ensure peace and that such incidents don't recur in future," an official said. The Home Ministry has also sought a report from the state administration.

In a suspected inter-caste violence, two children of a Dalit family were killed while their parents received serious burn injuries after their house was set afire early today in Sonped village in Faridabad.
