Two arrested for assaulting a Dalit boy in Gujarat
April 06, 2019
More than a week after a Gujarat Dalit boy was allegedly tied to a tree and beaten black and blue in Patan, the police and the teenager’s family are at loggerheads regarding the identity of the main accused and the motive behind the incident.
On Tuesday, the community leaders of the 17-year-old victim, who was admitted to the Mehsana Civil Hospital, increased the pressure on the police to arrest a bus conductor, who according to the boy, is the main accused.
The Patan police, which has been investigating the case, has not arrested the bus conductor citing lack of evidence. The police have also dismissed the theory that the minor was tied to a tree.
