Dear Sir,

I want to bring in your kind attention towards the news published in "The Hindu"  on 14th February, 2014 regarding "Dalit woman beaten, stripped"

A Dalit woman was beaten and stripped allegedly by people of other castes at Gangooru village in Belur taluk on Thursday.
The incident occurred during a peace meeting held in the morning to ease tension in the village following Dalits’ entry into a temple, and a mass haircut programme organised by a Bangalore-based hairstylist in the village on February 11.
Men and women of other castes allegedly assaulted the woman and tore off her clothes. “They stripped me in the centre of the village. More than 600 people had gathered,” the woman, who was in tears, toldThe Hindu . She has been admitted to the government hospital in Belur.
The woman’s husband was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the mass haircut programme. During the peace meeting, one person allegedly instigated the crowd to assault her and strip her.

Therefore it is a kind request please take appropriate action at earliest.

Thanking You
Sincerely Yours
