There are numerous tanks within the village with written messages that everybody can drink water from there.
So-known as higher caste humans in a Karnataka village drained a water tank and ‘purified’ it with cow urine after a Dalit woman allegedly drank water from its faucet.
On November 18, a lady belonging to a Scheduled Caste, who was attending a marriage feature on the Heggotara village in Karnataka’s Chamarajanagar district, drank water from a ingesting water tank in a place where people from so-called higher castes stay. Outraged, they released all of the water from the tank and wiped clean it with gau mutra (cow urine), that is considered to be holy through a few.
“The water tank become cleaned, however I can not affirm if it become with gau mutra,” IE Basvaraj, the local jurisdictional Tahseeldar instructed NDTV, adding that no one had seen the woman drinking water from the tank, and he or she hasn’t been traced thus far.
“We are looking to perceive and find her. Once it occurs, we are able to file a case (of discrimination),” Mr Basvraj said.
There are several tanks in the village with written messages that everyone can drink water from there.
The local authorities took numerous villagers from the Dalit and Other Backward Classes (OBC) groups to all of the tanks and made them drink water.
The Tahseeldar will now report a complete record to the District Collector for similarly motion, he stated.
