Seven Dalits burnt in UP village

Thursday, November 6, 2003 (Lucknow):

Seven members of a tribal family, including four women, were severely beaten up and burnt alive in their house by some Dalits in a village in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh today.

Ten people belonging to Pasi (Dalit) caste raided the house of Ganga Ram Kanjar in village Fatehpur Chaurasi in the wee hours and after beating up the inmates set the house ablaze.

The incident is believed to be a sequel to the dispute between the two groups over grazing of goats.

Senior police officials have reached the spot.
