Mysuru: In a caste-related incident, six persons belonging to the upper caste community were arrested for allegedly beating up members of a Dalit family who had come to eat panipuri at Arasinakere village in Mysuru district, the police said on Monday.

The accused have been identified as Murthy, Sachin, Naveen, Mahadevaswamy, Chandan, and Santhosh. They barged inside the residence of the victims and assaulted them, police added.

The injured persons, including Soubhagya, Dileep, Chandan, Madhukar, and Prasanna, have been admitted to a local hospital.

According to the complaint, Dileep, Prasanna and Madhukar had gone to eat ‘panipuri’ in a locality with a majority upper caste population.

The accused had objected to it and Murthy and Sachin had assaulted the victims. The elders of the village held a panchayat and brokered peace between them. However, the accused later barged into the residence of the victims and attacked Dileep, Prasanna, and Madhukar. Soubhagya and Chandan, who were at home and came to the rescue of victims, were also beaten up, IANS reported the police as saying.

The victims filed a complaint alleging atrocity, abuse, and life threat at the Jayapura police station.

The police went to the village and spoke to the victims and assured them of security. They also warned that such incidents should not be repeated in the village.
