Posters of “Makan Bikau Hai” have been put up on dozens of houses in Shamli district for the past few days due to the alleged harassment of a village headman.
Victim villagers allege that despite repeated complaints, the police and administration are not listening to them and on the contrary, cases are being registered against those who complain.
Dozens of Brahmin community members of village Gogwan Jalalpur under Babri police station area of Shamli district have alleged that the newly elected head’s husband and his supporters are constantly threatening and harassing him, accusing him of not voting in the election of the village head. are.
Troubled by the persecution, the villagers have put up posters on their homes, “We are forced to flee due to the harassment of the chief. The house is for sale”.
On Friday, a large number of these people also demonstrated at the District Magistrate’s office and gave a memorandum to the District Magistrate in this regard.
The protesters accused the village head husband Jaiprakash Rana and his son Vinay Rana of harassment and demanded action against them.
But Jaiprakash Rana, the husband of the village head, says that it is being done by those people who have occupied the land of the village society and we have sought help from the administration to get it vacated.
But according to the locals, the complaint about the alleged possession of the land has been made after the villagers threatened to flee and the place where the occupation is being said, has been built by people for many years.
Although the police and administration are directly denying any news like migration, but no complaint has been registered in this matter so far.
Shamli superintendent of police Sukriti Madhav says, “No one is migrating. This is absolutely baseless. All the posters that were put up have been removed. DM has formed an inquiry committee into the complaint of land grab. “
Elder Meghnath Sharma, a resident of Jalalpur, says that the taps, street lights outside the houses of Brahmin community people were uprooted and mental harassment is being done by turning off the water of the tank.
Meghnath Sharma says, “On May 9, some people tried to kidnap a person from the society. Every day people are being threatened and it is being told that they will kill us because you people did not vote for us. We are not getting any hearing even in the police and administration. The police is not even registering our complaint.”
A youth named Mohit Sharma alleges that two days ago some of Pradhan’s supporters tried to force him to sit on a motorcycle, but after the arrival of some other people, he left from there.
Many other people of the village have also made such complaints. The villagers allege that all these incidents were reported to the police many times but not a single FIR was registered.
action on viral audio
Local journalist Shravan Sharma says that before the election of a nephew of the village head, an audio has surfaced in which he is threatening a person named Yogesh. In this audio, not only are abuses being made in very obscene language, but also openly threatening to kill them.
Shamli Superintendent of Police Sukriti Madhav told PRESS24 NEWS Hindi that a preliminary investigation into the viral audio has found that it has nothing to do with the caste-based dispute, but that both the people communicating are of the same caste.
According to SP Madhav, a case has been registered in this matter.
Some villagers said on the condition of anonymity that the police and the administration are now threatening the same people who have put up posters of migration outside their homes.
A young villager told the PRESS24 NEWS, “We are being openly abused, daily indecent, even firing to intimidate but the entire administration’s investigation is focused on the false complaint of land possession. Till our complaint. Not taken.”
Villagers allege that Pradhan’s husband Jaiprakash Rana is very close to a minister of the state government and under his pressure neither his complaint is being registered nor any action is being taken against Pradhan.
An elderly man named Nakki Singh says, “We can’t abuse or fight. The administration and police are not helping us. So what are we left with now. We sell the house and move elsewhere We may not have to be tortured like this elsewhere.”
In Gogwan Jalalpur village with a population of about four thousand, the population of Brahmins is about 500 while the Rajput community has about 1300 people. The rest are people from other communities.
