Jind: Congress councillor allegedly kills Dalit woman over a shared plot of land

New Delhi: In a case of land grabbing, a Congress councillor from Jind in Haryana has allegedly killed a dalit woman and severely injured her husband. The woman's family claims that the councillor shared a plot of land with the woman's husband Ramniwas.

The councillor was attempting to take over the area, said the family. The deceased's family also claimed that the councillor has been harassing the family for a while.

Also, in a previous incident the councillor injured the woman's son. The police has filed a case against the official - who is absconding. But the woman's son alleges that the police has been helping the councillor in the land-grabbing attempt.

"They lodged an FIR, but haven't caught the counsillor yet. The police repeatedly told us they would broker a compromise. The police here is making a lot of money operating a land grabbing operation," woman's son said.
