‘Special courts should be set up in all districts in the State'

A struggle: Members of district unit of the Human Rights Forum for
Dalit Liberation submitting a memorandum to Additional Deputy
Commissioner Jiddimani in Bijapur on Saturday.

Bijapur: Members of district unit of the Human Rights Forum for Dalit
Liberation staged a protest demonstration demanding action against
police officers who refuse to register complaints regarding atrocities
on Dalits.

They submitted a memorandum to Governor H.R. Bhardwaj through Deputy
Commissioner S.S. Pattanshetty here on Saturday. They urged the
Governor to intervene and instruct authorities concerned to stop
atrocities on Dalits in the State.

The memorandum said that special courts should be set up in all
districts so that the cases of atrocities are tried and the guilty are
brought to book at the shortest possible time.

The Dalits said that the guilty in rape and attempt to rape cases
should be awarded life sentence.

The memorandum criticised Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa for his
“anti-Dalit attitude” during the BJP convention in Davangere recently.
The Dalits demanded an apology from the Chief Minister.

The agitation was led by Ramesh Honmore, Shivanna Madar, Prema Bilagi,
Tejavva Gayakawad and Dhanappa Shinde.
