Supreme Court slams Govt for inaction on Jat agitation

The Supreme Court directed the Centre and the state of Haryana to tell the court what action had been taken against the members of the Jat community who agitated for 11 days to block the arrest of the accused persons allegedly involved in violence against Dalits in Mirchpur village, Hisar. A bench comprising Justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly had earlier directed the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government to assess the loss caused by the agitators to public and private property during the agitation including road blockade so that the loss may be recovered from the agitators.
The court today directed the state government to file an affidavit giving details of the loss caused by the agitators to public and private property in the state and also the harassment caused to the people of the area. The court had already shifted the trial of the Mirchpur anti-Dalit violence case from district Hisar to Rohini court in Delhi to ensure free and fair trial. A 70-year-old man and his 18-year-old physically challenged daughter were killed in the arson attack on a Dalit locality in Mirchpur village. Jats allegedly attacked the Dalits in protest against the demand by Dalits for justice and arrest of the culprits who had raped the girl.
