Dalit man in Rajkot beaten to death on orders of a factory owner
A Dalit man in Rajkot was allegedly beaten to death by unidentified men on the orders of a factory owner.
A video of the horrific incident shows the Dalit man being beaten with a stick by a man. Despite his pleads that one can hear, he is continously beaten up and in fact, beaten up by another man later.
The Dalit victim has been identified as Mukesh Vaniya. His wife was allegedly beaten up too.
Vadgam MLA and Dalit rights crusader Jignesh Mevani today spoke against the brutal attack on the Dalit man. "Mukesh Vaniya belonging to a schduled caste was miserably thrashed and murdered by owners in Rajkot and his wife was brutally beaten up," he tweeted, adding a hashtag suggesting that Gujarat was not safe for Dalits.
