Telangana: BJP leader beats 2 Dalits with stick, forces them to dip in muddy pond

Nizamabad: A BJP leader behaved in a violent manner with two Dalit youths, who raised questions about his illegal gravel quarry in Abhangapatnam village of Navipet mandal in Nizamabad district.

A video clip of the incident went viral on social media on Sunday. As a result, the BJP leader allegedly whisked away the two victims to an unknown location.

Sources said Dalit youths Kondra Laxman and Rajeshwar of Abhangapatnam village went to the gravel quarry on the outskirts of their village to inquire about its permissions on September 17.

The owner of the quarry, M. Bharath Reddy, a BJP leader and the former district general secretary of the party, rushed to the spot and began beating the boys with a stick. He then made them take a dip in a muddy water tank, touch their noses to the ground, and apologise for visiting the quarry.

Dalits begged for mercy but in vain

The owner of the quarry, M. Bharath Reddy, a BJP leader and the former district general secretary of the party, also used filthy language and threatened the duo with dire consequences. The victims pleaded with folded hands but he refused to relent.

Mr Bharath Reddy has been accused of involvement in two murders and several other cases registered at various police stations in the district. After spending four years underground, he re-surfaced in his native village Gandhinagar in Navipet mandal and has been participating in party programmes. Speaking to this paper, G. Naresh, the SI of Navipe, said that the victims had not yet filed a complaint about the incident.
