Ashok Nagar, 19th May. 
In a disturbing incident in Madhya Pradesh’s Ashok Nagar district, an elderly Dalit couple was allegedly beaten and made to wear garlands of shoes, police reported on Sunday. The attack is said to be linked to a previous incident involving the couple’s son.

According to police, the couple’s son was allegedly involved in an eve-teasing incident with the wife of one of the accused, leading to the family’s departure from Kilora village. The incident occurred on Friday when the couple, aged 65 and 60, returned to the village. The accused allegedly tied the couple to a pole, assaulted them, and forced them to wear garlands of shoes.

Mungaoli police station in-charge Gabbar Singh Gurjar stated that a case has been registered against 10 individuals in connection with the assault. The charges include rioting, unlawful assembly, voluntarily causing hurt, obscene acts, and criminal intimidation under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

“All the accused are currently absconding, and efforts are underway to locate and apprehend them,” Gurjar added.

The attack has sparked outrage in the local community and drawn attention to the ongoing issues of caste-based violence and discrimination in the region. Authorities have assured that they are taking all necessary measures to bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure the safety of the affected family.
