Dalit girl hurls slipper at judge

Raipur, July 31

Angry at the acquittal of her alleged rapist by a court, a Dalit girl hurled a slipper at a district judge in a courtroom here on Tuesday. The girl was reportedly angry because the man who had allegedly raped her two years ago was acquitted last week in the same court. The incident occurred around 1 pm when the 18-year old petitioner Laxmi Khute, daughter of Karan Das Khute of Mohra village under Suhela police station arrived with her father at the court of special judge Sandeep Bakshi to inquire about the decision in her case. When Laxmi came to know that the accused in the rape case, Poshan Verma, was acquitted of the charge, she reportedly forced her way inside the court while the proceedings of another case were on, took out a slipper and hurled it towards the judge.
