Dalit beaten up for trying to get a hair cut, No police action!

Bhikharam Boudh from Shergarh in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan is telling us that in a village nearby called Saba dalits are not allowed to have their hair cut in village barber shops. He says a dalit went for his hair cut on 19th June and was beaten by 4 men of upper caste. A FIR was filed the next day but police has not taken any action. There are 4 barber shops in the village but none of them allow dalits to have hair cut. You are requested to please intervene to get justice. For more Boudh ji can be reached at 09587672855
