Three dalits thrashed for allegedly skinning calf

Three dalits were thrashed and handed over to police for allegedly skinning a living calf, before elders in Panipat district, Haryana, found them not guilty on Tuesday.

The three, residents of Chamra village in Panipat, were caught on Sunday.

A panchayat "unanimously" resolved that the dalits were not guilty, as the calf was dead, Haryana assembly Speaker Satbir Kadian said.

Following the ruling, the three were released, the sources said.

The incident came just 20 days after the killing of the five dalits in Dulina village of Jhajjar district for allegedly skinning a cow.
