Injustice



Baglung - Dalits from Syaula village were recently beaten up and tortured by a group of Janmorcha party workers for allegedly supporting the Maoists. Among the victims were 50-year-old Dhan Bahadur BK, 14-year-old Sukmaya and one-year-old Chitmaya. According to a local resident who arrived at the Baglung district headquarters, two women, both above 50, were tied up and locked up for more than six days. The political party has asked them to leave the village or suffer more punishment. After the incident, many dalit families have left Syaula and taken refuge in a neighbouring village. Some approached the Maoist activists for help and the rebels published a statement condemning the Janmorcha party for their unjust treatment. The local Maoist commander, Ashis Magar has said his group will take action against the activists and make them compensate the loss of property and physical torture of the victims.
