Scheduled Castes commission condemns lynching of Dalit by ‘farmers’

The chairman of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes, Vijay Sampla, condemned the lynching of Lakhbir Singh, terming it as a Taliban-like act of terrorism

Condemning the lynching of a Dalit man allegedly by a group of Nihang Sikhs near the Delhi-Haryana border, the chairman of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes Vijay Sampla has sought a preliminary report on the incident from the director-general of police in Haryana within 24 h.

Police have Nihang Sarabjit who had surrendered, claiming responsibility for killing the man, a video of whose mutilated body shocked the nation yesterday. The Nihang Sikh allegedly chopped off the victim’s hands at the protest site.

The was a labourer from the Cheema Khurd village in Punjab’s Tarn Taran, aged around 35 years.

The chairman of the Scheduled Castes commission wrote to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, seeking immediate and strict action by the government in this case.

The body of the Dalit man, identified as Lakhbir Singh, found with one of his hands severed, had been tied to a metal barricade near the protest site of so-called farmers at Kundli in District Sonepat, Haryana. The protest site is close to the Delhi-Haryana border at Singhu.

Altogether, there were over 10 injury marks inflicted by sharp-edged weapons. The Sikh terrorists allegedly dragged him up to some distance before tying him with ropes to the barricade. He is said to have bled to death.

“We have registered a case and further investigations are on,” Additional Director General of Police, Rohtak Range, Sandeep Khirwar said.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of farmer unions that is spearheading the protests at Delhi’s borders against three agriculture reform laws enacted by the parliament, said a group of Nihangs had claimed responsibility for the brutal killing after the who had allegedly attempted to desecrate the Sarbloh Granth, a holy book of the Sikhs.

In a series of tweets, the Scheduled Castes commission chairman condemned the lynching of Lakhbir Singh. He termed it as an act of terrorism, similar to what the are doing in Afghanistan.

“I strongly condemn the ruthless killing of Lakhbir Singh of Scheduled Caste, a resident of Tarn Taran, Punjab, on the Singhu border. Bhai Ghanaiya ji‘s heirs can never do such a act. All limits of cruelty are crossed in the guise of farmers. The terrorists who do this should be punished severely,” he tweeted.

In a video clip that has gone viral on social media platforms, some Nihangs are seen standing as the man lies on the ground in a pool of blood with his chopped off left hand lying next to him. The Nihangs are heard in the clip saying the man has been punished for desecrating a holy book of the Sikhs.

Sharing the video, Vijay Sampla further tweeted, “Is this video from ‘Kabul’ or this act is not of ISIS. This is a picture of savagery in the name of farmers’ on the Singhu border of Delhi’s capital of India! @DGPHaryana Make sure to take strict action.”

A screenshot of one of the tweets by Vijay Sampla, with the portion of the video he shared cropped out.

Sirf is not showing the video here due to its gory content but readers may reach it by clicking on the link in the caption under the screenshot above.

The video clip shows the Nihangs asking the man where had he come from.

The deceased is heard saying something in Punjabi and pleading before the Nihang Sikhs. His body bears wounds.

The clip shows the Nihang Sikhs repeatedly asking him who had sent him for committing sacrilege.

One of them says the man is a “Punjabi” and not an outsider, and it should not be made into a Hindu-Sikh issue. Another raises a religious chant.

The Nihangs are a Sikh order, distinguished by their blue robes and often seen carrying spears and swords.

A case of murder has been registered at the Kundli police station in Sonepat against unidentified persons, police said.

Asked about the video clip circulating on social media platforms, a Sonepat police official said the matter is being investigated.

The body has been sent to the Sonepat civil hospital for post-mortem.

A Haryana police spokesperson said in Chandigarh that the man died soon after the Sonepat police team reached the spot.

Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at three border points of Delhi — Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur — for over 10 months, demanding a repeal of the three farm laws enacted by the Centre in September last year.
