The Gujarat Police on Saturday claimed that the Dalit youth who was killed in Bhavnagar district late Thursday allegedly for keeping a horse used to harass local girls and the villagers were angry with his activities.

District Superintendent of Police Pravin Mal told reporters that initial investigations had revealed that 21-year-old Pradeep Rathod might not have been killed because he was a Dalit and the higher castes had objections over his using and keeping a horse.

 

Scroll and other media news site which are pro congress and Alt-left , are ususally quick to acknowlewdge and edit in case of FAKE news, but in this case of pitching Dalits against Rajputs, neither scroll nor any other media has eidted/deleted the story.
