A day after one Dalit man was killed and several injured in fresh caste-clashes in western Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur district, four senior officials and additional policemen have been rushed to the area to control the situation.
According to reports, a group of Dalits allegedly threw stones at the homes of a few Rajputs in Shabbirpur before BSP chief Mayawati's rally, which led to the tension between the two communities. However, senior cops intervened to avoid a major flare up. The fresh clashes broke out when a truck carrying Dalits back to their village from the rally spot was attacked, allegedly by Thakurs in the area. A Dalit man died in the clashes and two were critically injured.
