Justice for Saraswati Devi - Casteist Harassment #dignity4all

Physical assault on Dalit women by PDS dealer (retired from Armed Forces) in
Patan, Dist. Palamau, Jharkhand. According to Saraswati Devi “Despite using locally very respectable salutations like Babu Saheb and Gaunwa for the dealer, he abused us so badly and even used our caste names very insultingly. It was our right and an entitlement from the government that we were asking for. After this incident, we feel so terrorized that we wouldn’t be able to go to ask for our ration for a long time. He and his men are still threatening us. They tried to stop us from reporting to the police, the DC and SDO. They say that if we raise this issue, they would kill us! They freely roam around with fire-arms. ”
