Upper caste youths stop dalit's ghurchari
ROHTAK: A dalit groom was barred from carrying out the marriage ritual of ghurchari by a group of upper caste youths in Baniyani village of Rohtak district on Monday night.
Police booked around 10 persons and arrested one of them on Tuesday. A police team also took stock of the situation in the village.
Meham DSP Prithvi Singh said that the situation is under control now and the police were trying to nab the remaining accused of which six had been identified.
Ghurchari is a pre-nuptial ritual in which the groom rides a mare to the village temple.
The complainant, Patlu, told the police that they were carrying out the marriage procession of his son Rajesh Kumar. When the procession reached near the house of Ram Pal, he objected and denied entry to the street. He was supported by youths identified as Bhagate, Madan, Kale, Devender, Raju and some others.
The complainant said they tried to argue with them but the youths refused to let the ghurchari march on. "We had to divert our route to return home. We informed the police about the incident," the groom's father said.
Police sources said that on Tuesday, both the groups had a confrontation on the issue again. However, it was resolved by the police. The DSP said police has been deployed in the village and the situation. "One person has been rounded up for questioning," he said.
