Everyday at average 9 Dalits are murdered and 19 women are raped. Increasing honour-killing are at rise which victimized Amrita and Pranay, by killing Pranay mercilessly in Telengana. In July month, Sakshi Mishra, daughter of BJP legislator Rajesh Mishra, marrying a man outside her caste was attempted to be murdered. Another 22 years boy was burnt by petrol with a same cause.

In Tripura’s Bishalgrah Madan Nama was beaten so brutally that he died. Sukhu Gour, another Dalit was killed merciless by BJP miscreants.
