BADAUN, UP — A Dalit boy, aged 10 years, was allegedly killed by a group of upper caste men over a property dispute in Badaun district. The Class 3 student went missing on Sunday evening and his body was found, hours later, hanging from a tree in the village farm.

The incident occurred in Rafatpur that has a mixed population of upper castes and Dalits. The present village head is a Dalit.

According to the boy’s family, Gurjeet, the victim, was playing in the farm near the disputed part of the land when the accused men caught the boy, strangled him to death and tied him to a tree. The men fled after noticing a few villagers in the area, reports IANS.

According to Police, a case has been registered against three persons — Matru Singh, Munesh Singh and Sher Singh — under IPC section of murder and the SC/ST Act.

According to reports, Omkar Jatav, grandfather of the victim boy, said, the accused ‘had encroached upon our farmland for almost 15 years’. Omkar Jatav says the accused are influential people and multiple complaints against them he lodged in the past, but no action was taken against them by the Police and the revenue department.

The police said that the matter is being investigated and the body has been sent for post-mortem.
