Beef Row: 7 Bajrang Dal Activists Arrested


Bengaluru: Seven Bajrang Dal activists were arrested on Monday in Chikmagalur district in Karnataka for attacking four dalit youths including a physically challenged person for ‘eating beef’.

On July 17, a gang of 30-40 Bajrang Dal members barged into the house of a Dalit family, beat them up with sticks and threatened them with machetes.

The attack has come to light even as Gujarat is burning over a similar atrocity on Dalits in Una. Dalit groups are demanding that accused should be booked under the SC/ST atrocities act.
