Received orders to kill the demons in his dream - The killer of innocent Dalit children

Two brothers were arrested for allegedly beating two Dalit children to death for defecating on the street in front of a panchayat building in Madhya Pradesh’s Shivpuri district on Wednesday, PTI reported.

Hakim Yadav and his brother Rameshwar Yadav, were booked for murder and the investigation so far suggested that they were the only ones involved, Sirsod Police Station Inspector RS Dhakad said.

The father of one of the children said the family had been facing caste discrimination in Bhavkedhi village, where the incident took place. He claimed that the family was allowed to draw water from the hand-pump only after all other residents had done so. They have no toilet at home family said.

Complaints filed by the children’s parents said the accused attacked them while they were defecating on a street in front of the panchayat building around 6.30 am on Wednesday. Roshani Balmiki, 12, and Avinash Balmiki, 10, suffered serious injuries and were rushed to the district hospital, where they were declared brought dead.

Manoj Balmiki, the father of one of the deceased, said.

“I had a heated argument with the accused two years ago and they abused me over caste lines and threatened to kill me,”  “They wanted me to work for them as a labourer for a meagre sum.”

Avinash's father, Manoj, says that as a daily wage labourer, he cannot afford to build a toilet at his house. He also says he has been unable to access a government subsidy as part of a flagship scheme to build toilets for the poor.

He had received orders to kill the demons in his dream

According to reports, both men were angry that children are defecating in the open and that too next to the Panchayat Building. Children were beaten on this matter. According to the report of Dainik Bhaskar, when one of these two men was questioned, he said that he had received orders to kill the demons in his dream.

Millions of poor Indians defecate in the open, which especially puts women and children at risk. Dalits are at the bottom of the Hindu caste system and despite laws to protect them, they still face widespread discrimination in India.
