The police, however, have abstained to pick up the caste angle in the matter and have called it a fight breaking out due to enmity between the parties. Bijawar’s sub-divisional officer, Raghu Kesri, informed the media on Monday that the incident escalated due to an enmity between the parties. While talking to the media, the police administration addressed that the case has been registered and efforts are being made to arrest the accused in the matter.

The police’s remark contradicts the comments and statements made the by the kin of the 30-year-old Dalit man. The wife of the victim had accused Rohit Singh Thakur, the person identified for assaulting the Dalit man, of being enraged by the Dalit man sitting on a seat in front of him and also added that the accused proclaimed that only Thakurs can sit on a seat.

The Panchayat secretary also added that after the incident on Saturday, Thakur with his entourage again reached the Dalit man’s home and attacked him on Sunday. The village sarpanch confirmed the allegations made by the victim’s wife, and also confirmed the attack on the victim on Sunday evening.

The Victim, according to reports, is undergoing treatment at the district hospital after suffering fractures on both hands, injuries on the head, and other body parts as well.
