Adequate compensation must be paid to those who have suffered losses.
The action was taken following a fresh clash in which two people were attacked in Nanota Badgaum area after they were suspected to be "Dalits".
"All the accused should be arrested and the UP government should set up a special court to deliver the judgment within 120 days. When the rival parties saw that Dalits had also started believing in the BJP, they pit them against Thakurs", he alleges.
"Kshatriyas inflicted atrocities on Dalits and the administration was complicit in the deed". "What is worrisome in Saharanpur is that the administration is silent and has been a mute witness". "Whoever has failed to discharge their duties should be punished. The district police chief is at the spot", Anand Kumar, senior police officer in the region, said, according to local media. One of the victims was also shot at.
The trigger for the latest round of unrest comes on the heels of a rally by Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) chief Mayawati in Shabbirpur village, though it's not clear who, or what specifically, set it off.
A massive search operation has been launched and more than 20 suspects have been arrested on charges of inciting violence.
Fired FBI chief Comey to testify publicly in Congress
Comey will testify publicly before the Senate intelligence committee after Memorial Day, the panel's leaders announced Friday. But the next day, the White House sang a little bit of a different tune .
Later, on May 5, a Dalit group objected to a procession of Thakurs to mark the birth anniversary of Rajput king Maharana Pratap, triggering violence, in which one person was killed and over 15 were injured.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has sent a team of officials led by Home Secretary Mani Prasad Mishra to Saharanpur.
Violence broke out in Saharanpur district, about 711 km northwest of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Since then, Dalits or their symbols have been targeted in villages of the district nearly every day. "Situation is under control, we are monitoring everything and will be camping here (at the scene) till normalcy returns", Mishra added.
Referring to her party's rule in UP, Mayawati said the BSP had never allowed inter-caste riots and had always worked for communal harmony. Dalits have refuted the allegation and said Bhim Army was not involved in the arson. At least one man was killed due to gunshot wounds and several injured during the violence. He later blamed a BJP leader for instigating the crowd.
Mishra said the Dalits were attacked while they were returning from a rally led by their leader Mayawati in Saharanpur, a town in Uttar Pradesh state.
However, at a press conference on immunisation campaign, Siddhartnath Singh, who is the state's health minister and also the official spokesperson, took the opportunity to target the Opposition parties by saying it would have been better if those shedding tears over Saharanpur caste clashes had got themselves associated with this campaign. Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) and Rapid Action Force (RAF) companies have been deployed in violence-hit villages.
