Madhya Pradesh: A 52-year-old Dalit man was allegedly abducted and beaten to death by two men from a dominant caste for a piece of land in a village near Dabra town of Gwalior district, the victim’s family said.
The deceased Ramhet Jatav, a resident of Akbai village, died on Friday while undergoing treatment in a hospital. The deceased’s brother Rambabu Jatav alleged that police were trying to save the accused Balveer Tomar and his son Ravindra Tomar, residents of the same village.
However, Pichhore police station incharge KD Sharma said, “The deceased Ramhet Jatav had filed a complaint of voluntarily causing hurt against the accused and he was fine but how he died is a matter of investigation.”
Sharma said, “About ten years ago, Jatav received one-acre land on a deed from the state government but Balveer Tomar had encroached upon the land and was not allowing Jatav to do farming. Jatav also filed a complaint with the revenue department.” Hindustan Times
