Dalit family in Rajasthan awaits justice after attack by Thakurs

Dalit family in Rajasthan awaiting justice for 2 years, ready to end their lives if they don’t get it

Ashok Meghwal, from the Dalit victim family in the Pali Sirana case ,tweeted to Rajasthan’s Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, alleging injustice happening to the family since 2021 and that they are living in constant fear. Meghwal’s tweet mentioned his family’s decision to attempt suicide by climbing on top of a water tank at Jodhpur Ravana Chowk, urging the authorities to deliver justice promptly. The tweet also tagged figures, including Rahul Gandhi and the official Rajasthan Chief Minister’s Office account.

A Dalit family in Pali, Rajasthan, suffered a traumatic incident in March 2021 when they were allegedly attacked by a group of Thakurs from their village. The victims, including a pregnant woman and an elderly lady, endured the assault, seeking justice for the atrocities committed against them. Ashok Meghwal had filed an FIR, but the proceedings had yet to commence, leaving the family in a state of despair.

Last year, in a conversation with the Dalit Desk, Ashok Meghwal expressed his distress over the ongoing ordeal. He disclosed that one of their witnesses had succumbed to bribery by the Thakur individuals, compromising the integrity of the case. Additionally, other witnesses had fallen victim to land encroachments, making their livelihoods increasingly challenging. Meghwal voiced his concern about the intimidation and threats faced by the witnesses, as such pressures could potentially weaken the case.

Acknowledging the severity of the situation, the District Magistrate issued written orders for a comprehensive investigation into the matter. The orders also instructed the Tehsildar to take necessary action based on the available video evidence. However, uncertainty surrounds the commencement of the investigation, leaving the Dalit family and their supporters anxious for justice to prevail.

Ashok Meghwal’s plea to the Chief Minister and his tweet highlighting the plight of his family underscored the desperate cry for immediate attention and action. The incident serves as a grim reminder of the pervasive caste-based discrimination and violence prevalent in society, demanding the urgent intervention of the authorities.

The future of the Dalit family in Pali, Rajasthan, hangs in the balance as they await justice.
