“If you do not withdraw the case, we will kill you, burn down your house and stone your daughter”.
Caste violence raises it’s ugly head in Rajasthan after 10 year old girl was (allegedly) raped by a 35 year old neighbour. The girl who is a dalit (or untouchable) was found unconscious in a field by her mother.
Even the village leaders supported the (alleged) rapist and a day after the incident a mob told them to settle for money or face death.
I reported on this case two days ago and retract my statement. The 10 year old girl here was not jailed, but placed in a cell for her safety. It was the safest part of the police station.
As of now the young girl is under constant police guard.
