Shocking: A TN Dalit boy was forced to carry his faetus by a Hindu man - Here's why!

In a shocking and dreadful incident in Tamil Nadu that strongly spotlighted the caste disparities, a 14-year-old Dalit boy was forced to carry and eat the faeces after he openly defecated on the land that belongs to the upper caste man. 

According to the reports, this appalling incident has happened on July 15 in Pennagaram, Dharmapuri district where the landlord had reportedly abused the boy, who defecated on the land owned by the former. Landlord Rajasekhar has allegedly forced the boy to carry the excreta to his house and at one extent, the landlord asked the boy to eat his own faeces.

A 14-year-old boy is studying tenth standard and following the incident, the boy informed his father about what has happened after which his father filed a complaint in a police station. The reports say that the boy has defecated on Rajasehkar's land at 5 pm on July 15.  Based on the complaint, the police has filed an FIR against the landlord in which it has been stated that Rajasekhar has reportedly hit the boy and asked him to carry the excreta to his house, after seeing the boy had defecated on his land.

After being forced by the upper caste man, a Dalit boy has carried the faeces on his hands and walked for five meters and reached his home and he informed his father, who shocked to see his son carrying the faeces on his hands. 

He moved to the police and lodged a complaint and based on his complaint, the police have booked an FIR against Rajasekhar under sections 323 - Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt of the Indian Penal Code and Section 3(1) (i) of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.
