Even though the country keeps trying to move forward with the pace of time, but from time to time some such incidents come to the fore when it seems that we are still living in the India of decades ago. Due to the incidents of caste violence, some new controversy keeps arising every day. This time the matter has come up from Mahoba district of Uttar Pradesh.


Here, the newly elected Scheduled Caste woman village head has alleged that the bullies grabbed her hand and dragged her from the chair and made her sit on the ground. The woman alleges that the bullies told her that you are a Dalit, so she cannot sit on the chair in front of us. In fact, Savita Devi Ahirwar, the newly elected village head of Nathupura village of Sadar Kotwali area, alleges that she was involved in a virtual meeting on June 2 in the presence of the Assistant Development Officer (ADO) and Block Development Officer (BDO) in the village panchayat building. During this, some Dabangs of the village came and started behaving indecently with them. According to Savita Devi, more than 10 people, including Ramu Rajput, reached the Panchayat Bhawan and using caste-indicative words, grabbed their hands and took them down from the chair.

Savita Devi has alleged that the bullies, using casteist words, told her that you are a Dalit and cannot sit on a chair in front of us. Along with this, he threatened Savita Devi that she would have to run the village head according to her mind. That is, Savita Devi will have to do as Dabang says. It is being told that during this time when the President opposed it, Ramu along with his companions also scuffled with them.


According to CO Ram Pravesh Rai, a case has been registered against 10 accused including 4 nominated in the police station on the complaint of the female village head. Mahoba ASP RK Gautam said that an FIR has been registered against six unidentified people including Ramu Rajput, Rupendra Rajput, Arjun Rajput, Ravindra Rajput for abusing, threatening, molesting and under SC / ST Act. At the same time, the main accused Ramu Rajput has also been arrested and sent to jail and the police is looking for other accused.
