Una Atrocity Case: Mayawati to Meet Victims on Aug 4
Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati will on Thursday meet the four Dalits, who were cruelly beaten by ‘cow vigilantes’ at Una in Gir-Somnath district and are admitted in the civil hospital here.
“It has been conveyed to us that Mayawatiji will visit Ahmedabad on August 4 to meet the victims of Una atrocity who are currently getting treated at the civil hospital here,” state BSP unit secretary Pradeep Parmar said.
The four were shifted to Ahmedabad hospital on Friday last week as their health deteriorated soon after being discharged from Rajkot civil hospital.
Parmar further said that she will also meet the state team of BSP.
Four Dalits—Ashok Sarvaiya, Vashram Sarvaiya, Bechar Sarvaiya and Ramesh Sarvaiya—were rushed to the city civil hospital after they developed serious complications, a day after being discharged from Rajkot civil hospital.
Senior Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela met the victims at Ahmedabad hospital.
On July 11, the dalit youths were beaten up at Mota Samadhiyala village of Una taluka in Gir-Somnath district by a group of cow vigilantes for skinning a dead cow.
A number of political leaders, including Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav, later visited the village and Rajkot civil hospital to meet the victims.
The police have so far booked 26 people in connection with the atrocity case and the investigation into the matter is now being carried out by state CID-Crime.
