The Incident and Background

The incident took place in Naunagir village of Barodia police station area in Khurai. An 18-year-old youth named Nitin was fatally attacked by a group of individuals. Contrary to the initial claims, the motive behind the attack was not solely related to caste. Reports indicate that there was a prior enmity between the accused and the deceased over a molestation case that had been withdrawn in 2019. The case was registered against the village head’s son.

On the day of the incident, Nitin had gone out to buy vegetables when he was confronted by Komal Singh, the husband of the village head, and his sons. The accused attacked Nitin with rods and sticks, severely injuring him. Nitin’s mother and sister-in-law, who tried to intervene, were also subjected to violence.

The police promptly arrived at the scene and initiated legal proceedings. Twelve individuals were named as accused in the case, including Komal Singh, Lalu Khan, Vikram Singh, Azad Singh, Nafees Khan, Waheed Khan, Islam Khan, Golu Soni, Anees Khan, Vijay Singh, Abhishek Raikwar, and another individual. Six of the accused were arrested, and the investigation continues.

The incident quickly became a matter of political discussion. Mayawati, the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and BSP supremo, raised questions about the law and order in Madhya Pradesh, highlighting the incident as an example of caste-based oppression. On the other hand, Congress state president Kamal Nath established a committee to probe into the matter.

Conclusion

While initial claims pointed towards caste-based hatred, a deeper examination of the incident reveals a more complex background.
