Dalit youth attacked for riding bicycle Staff Reporter

MADURAI: A Dalit youth who rode a bicycle before caste Hindus was beaten up at Vadivelkarai near Nagamalai Pudukottai in the district on Thursday last. A. Murugan (25) was allegedly attacked by a group of youths.

After the incident, in which he sustained a head injury, the youths filed a complaint against Mr. Murugan and his father, a conservancy worker.

He has been admitted to the Government Rajaji Hospital. A case has been filed under Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and under Section 302 against O. Anand at the Nagamalai Pudukottai police station. The Samayanallur Deputy Superintendent of Police is investigating.

In 2007, Mr. Murugan’s brother was attacked for the same reason.

A lone graduate from the Arunthathiyar community, Mr. Murugan has been opposing restrictions imposed upon the community by caste Hindus. He has also been conducting free classes for children belonging to the Dalit community.

Residents alleged that the two-tumbler system still existed in the village; it had changed from coconut shells to disposable cups for Dalits. The caste Hindus were served tea in glass tumblers. The village has 75 Dalit families and more than 500 families of caste Hindus.
