GULBARGA, Nov 15

The Babu Jagajeevanram All-India Samatha Movement (BJAISM) District unit has condemned the gang rape of a dalit housewife at Gazipur area in the city recently.

In a press release here today, BJAIMS District President Ambarai Kamble said that atrocities on dalits, especially on dalit women, were on the increase in the State. Though the State government was aware of this, it had turned a blind eye towards such incidents, he alleged.

BJAISM condemned the act of the duty doctor at the government hospital for not having examined the victim properly and for giving a false medical report. It also criticised the police department for its negligence regarding the issue.

He warned that if the State government did not take action immediately, the organisation would be forced to launch agitations throughout the district.
