Clashes between two communities forces Hindu family to flee from Saharanpur

Alleging lack of action by the police and fearing harassment from goons, a Hindu family has fled their village, Banheda Khas, in Devbandh, Saharanpur. As per reports, an argument took place between one Amit and one Salim over the credit of supply of cold drink, which quickly turned violent. According to Amit, he is being pressured to withdraw his complaint against the culprits, failing which, they threatened him that he will be thrown out of the village.

As per reports, Amit Kumar supplied cold drinks in the village and Salim was his old debtor. On 15th June, Salim asked for more credit, to which Amit declined, which quickly took a violent turn. Amit alleged that the police, instead of filing a complaint, filed a non-cognizable report, following which Salim has been asking him to withdraw his report.

Fearing for their lives, the family which belongs to the Prajapati community has fled the village. The fear of getting attacked by Salim, they had stopped stepping out of the house, and now have decided to a safer village. Families of Sandeep, Amit, Sohanlal and others have moved from the village to Uttarakhand village.

Earlier, few days after the BJP lost the Kairana by-polls, a Hindu family migrated to Haryana, fearing for their lives from Nadim, their neighbour, who had been allegedly regularly beating them up. Earlier in 2016, a report by NHRC (National Human Rights Commission) reported exodus of over 250 Hindu families from Kairana. The inquiry was undertaken after a complaint was received of a woman belonging to Kashyap caste was abducted, gang-raped and killed.
