Impact: Official visited feast in death ceremony but says cant stop it by law...

Raju from Udaipur Rajasthan says I had called yesterday in Swara to tell that a Mrityubhoj ( feast in death ceremony) is taking place in my village under pressure from our caste panchayat. Thanks to the calls made by Swara friends SDM sent the policemen to the venue but said they can not stop the function legally. Earlier he was not responding to our complaint.You are requested to call our caste leaders to stop this tradition which is hard on poor. Raju is at 08875541925
