“……..And I love my family” — Dalit Youth pens suicide note demanding justice for his family

Rajasthan— In a Shocking incident, which again accentuates the growing atrocities against Dalits in Congress-ruled Rajasthan, a Dalit youth committed suicide in the Nosal village of Ajmer District.

The Incident

It is reported that one day, around Diwali when Omprakash’s father was working the in the field when Kishan Ram Gurjarcame along with his nephews and unleashed the Sheep and Goats on the fields. His father protested when the animals started destroying the crops, this did not go down well with Gurjar and his nephews, who started beating him. Upon hearing the news, the rest of the family members rushed to the fields but were humiliated and got subjected to casteist abuses.

Later, as per the suicide note written by Omprakash Rajbhar, the police not only diluted the report but also registered a case against Regar and his family members.

Shattered by the Police harassment and the guilt of “helplessness” in helping his family Regar hung himself with an iron ceiling. In a heart-wrenching suicide note, Omprakash Regar expressed remorse for not being able to help his family members. He also made an appeal to Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad to help his family get justice and also that his cremation is done by Azad.
