Two Dalit Men Tortured In Rajasthan's Nagaur, State Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot Submits Report To Congress Leader Sonia Gandhi
Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister and the Congress' state unit chief Sachin Pilot submitted a report to party president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday over the recent incident of torture of two Dalit men in Nagaur district.
The report was based on the findings of a three-member fact-finding panel comprising Rajasthan Cabinet Minister and state Congress vice-president Bhanwar Lal Meghwal, MLA Harish Meena and the party's state unit general secretary Mahesh Sharma.
Sources said lapses were found on part of police in the handling of the case as the incident happened on February 16 but the FIR was registered four days later only after the video of it went viral.
While refusing to comment on the contents of the report, Mr Pilot said that atrocities and crime are condemnable and more so if the targets are Dalits, tribals and other poor sections of the society.
