Hindutva goons particularly the upper-caste Hindus under the patronage of Bharatiya Janata Party in India are enjoying a freehand to victimize the members of minority communities.

The highhandedness of Hindutva goons could be gauged from a video circulating on social media in which a minor Dalit boy was suspended down a well on suspicion of theft of a mobile phone. The chilling video surfaced in Chatarpur district in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh in which an upper caste Hindu man is holding hand of an 8-year-old Dalit boy dangling in a well in Akhoha village, roughly 35 kilometres from Chhatarpur district headquarters.

The boy could be heard screaming on top of his throat pleading innocence, but the accused Ajeet Rajput, 31, an upper caste Hindu man, does not relent. Meanwhile, the Human Rights Commission of Madhya Pradesh has sought a detailed report from the police in this regard.—Agencies
