Dalit Girl’s Decomposed Body Found In Unnao; Parents Blame Former Samajwadi Party Leader’s Son

Dalit Girl’s Decomposed Body Found In Unnao; Parents Blame Former Samajwadi Party Leader’s Son

The injustices that are done against the Dalits in India have always been a point of concern. Even today, they’re treated as though their lives are unimportant. Don’t believe me? Take the instance of this Dalit girl whose decomposed body was found in Unnao. The mother of the girl blames former Samajwadi Party (SP) leader’s son, Rajol Singh. In fact, the family is so sure about this that they have even refused to cremate their daughter until the police take a look.

A Dalit girl’s decomposed body was found near an ashram that was owned by a former SP leader’s son. According to the mother, Rajol Singh, the son of former SP minister late Fateh Bahadur Singh, was the one who killed her.

The Dalit girl’s mother said, “My daughter was killed by Rajol Singh in his ashram and buried there. I had gone to the ashram earlier. They showed us the whole premises, except the three-storey building. I had called a local police officer, but he switched his phone off. If he had come, I would have found my daughter alive.”

In fact, the reports suggest that the Dalit woman also tried to self-immolate in front of the SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s residence in Lucknow to get his attention on her daughter’s case. However, the Superintendent of Police, Unnao, says a whole different story. As per him, a missing person complaint was filed and they even have arrested one person so far.

On January 24th, Rajol Singh was arrested in connection to the missing Dalit girl’s case. Talking about the incident, BSP’s Mayawati also slammed the SP in a tweet where she even asked the state government to take strict action against the culprits.

It hurts me to know how easily they turned the death of a girl into a political fight. I guess when they say politics has no place for empathy, this is what they mean.
