Dalit mother, daughter stripped in Ajmer

New Delhi: A Dalit woman and her daughter were stripped and publicly humiliated by upper caste men in a village near Ajmer.

The Dalit family has fled the village and is camping under a tree outside the sub-divisional office near their village for the past three days.

They allege that upper caste men have threatened to kill them if they return to their village.

The 16-year-old Dalit girl was, reportedly, being harassed over the phone by a man from a upper caste family.

When she objected, she was threatened.

The family says they were locked up in a house for a night before they managed to flee.
