Congress-ruled state of Rajasthan has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. Several incidents of rapes and gangrapes have been reported in the the state in this month alone. And now, reports of another gut-wrenching incident are coming from Alwar district of the state, where a Dalit salesman was burnt alive by a liquor contractor.

According to reports, a salesman working in a liquor shop in Kumpur village had asked for his salary due for five months. After the salesman demanded his salary, the liquor contractor allegedly poured petrol on him and burnt him alive in a deep freezer. SHO Dara Singh told that a report has been filed in Khairthal police station by victim’s brother Roop Singh Dhanka who is a resident of Jhadka.

Roop Singh told the police that his brother Kamal Kishore used to work with liquor contractors Rakesh Yadav and Subhashchand. The liquor shop was being run in a container at Kumpur-Bhagori turn. Singh alleged that his brother was assaulted and threatened whenever he demanded his salary.

As told by Roop Singh, in the evening on October 24, Rakesh Yadavand Subhashchand came to Kishore’s house and took him with them. When Kishore did not return in the night, his family thought that he might have gone somewhere with the contractors. The next morning, Kishore’s family got to know that a fire had broken out in the liquor shop. Victim’s family members reached at the site and opened the container in which the liquor shop was being run in the presence of the police.

On opening the container, they found Kishore’s charred body placed in sitting position in the deep freezer. Roop Singh has accused Rakesh Yadav and Subashchand of burning his brother alive after pouring petrol on him and then setting the container on fire. A case has been registered against Rakesh Yadav and Subhashchand under sections 302,436,120B of the Indian Penal Code and under the relevant provisions of the SC/ST Act.

Locals question the running of shop inside a container

Enraged by the horrific incident, the locals have raised questioned as to why the liquor shop was being run inside a container. The family of the victim refused to send the body for postmortem demanding judicial inquiry in the case. On assurance from DSP Tarachand, the body was allowed to be sent for postmortem. Both the accused are absconding.

BJP Condemns Rajasthan Government

The state president of BJP in Rajasthan, Dr. Satish Poonia posted a tweet condemning the incident. Likening Rajasthan with Somalia in Africa, Poonia said that there was no law and order in the state like the African country.
