Dalit cop beaten by PSI: SC body seeks report

The NationalCommission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) has issued notice to Patan district superintendent of police and sought an action-taken report, after a dalit women constable alleged that she was beaten by a police sub-inspector in a police station.

According to the complainant,Nirupa Makwana (25), she is the sole breadwinner for her family of five siblings and elderly parents. Makwana's complaint states that a woman sub-inspector, Nikita Dodiya, who comes from a dominant so-called upper caste had on October 12 beaten her at the Shankheswar town police station.

After the incident, the commission headed by Raju Parmar on October 13 sent a notice to Patan SP Ashwin Chauhan asking for "a complete action taken report regarding the incident. The matter may be treated as most urgent."

Makwana said Dodiya called her on October 12 when she returned from a Muharram bandobast and asked her why she had spread rumours about her (Dodiya) being in a relationship with a male officer.
