Bengaluru: Dalit organizations in Karnataka will protest across the state on Monday condemning the Hathras gangrape incident.

The protests will be organized by the Dalit organisations across 23 districts in Karnataka demanding the dismissal of the Uttar Pradesh government.

The Dalit forums in Karnataka have stated that if no action is taken, the state organization will join the national-level committee for an agitation across the country.

The forums claimed that the UP police have shown their “casteist and anti-woman” side by destroying the evidence, burning the body of the victim, and announcing that there was no rape.

Their action will lead to loss of justice, destroying the basic human rights enshrined in the Constitution, said the organization chiefs.

In another protest against the Hathras incident, people from different walks of life said that despite a nation-wide outrage on the death of the 19-year-old Dalit girl, the response of the Uttar Pradesh police has been spine chilling and inhuman.
