In a bizarre incident, upper caste people in Madhya Pradesh's Mana village poured kerosene into a well used by the Dalits. The incident occurred after Chandar Singh, a dalit, invited a band party for his daughter's wedding and the upper caste community was unhappy with it as the traditions of the village only allow a 'dhol' to welcome the groom. Singh got warning from upper caste people but he arranged tight security for the marriage. Furious over Singh's ignorance, the upper caste members poured kerosene in the well to take revenge. Unable to use the water from the well, the dalits have dug a hole on the banks of Kalisindh River to extract water and meanwhile are using pumps to separate the kerosene from the water.
