Atrocities against dalits increasing in Kerala: NCSC


The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has said that atrocities against Dalits are increasing in Kerala and the state government has failed to ensure their safety. L Murugan, the vice chairman of the commission, said that the panel has been receiving lots of complaint of atrocities especially against Dalit women and on diversion of funds meant for the Scheduled Castes for other purposes.

He was in Thiruvananthapuram after visiting Govindapuram village in Palakkad district, where Dalits had been allegedly subjected to untouchability. Murugan also went to some villages in Muvattupuzha in Ernakulam district. Murugan also asked the state government to ensure basic amenities for Dalits across the state.
