The City Police registered a case under SC, ST Attrocities Act against Labour Minister Danam Nagender and his supporters for allegedly attacking a dalit youth near Tukkaramgate here on Sunday morning.
The youth was allegedly beaten up by minister’s men after a group of Telangana activists threw eggs on Nagender’s vehicle. The youth, identified as Sharavan, had a bleeding injury on his face and multiple injuries on the body. Basing on a complaint, a case under SC, ST Atrocities Act has been booked against the minister and his men at the Tukkaramgate Police Station.
Meanwhile, the attack has drawn widespread condemnation with the pro-Telangana parties demanding his arrest and removal from the cabinet. Handlooms and Textiles Minister Dr P Shankar Rao too condemned the attack and demanded impartial probe into the matter. He exhorted the dalit organisations to organise protest across the State against the minister. He informed that he spoke to the police officials concerned asking them to take severe action against those involved in the attack.
Demanding stern action against the Labour Minister, the Osmania University Students JAC said that the state government arrested the MPs and MLAs who were peacefully participating in the Rail Roko agitation, but spared a minister who openly attacked a dalit youth. (INN)
