A video of a Dalit youth being denied a haircut in a salon based on his caste in a village in Salem district had been going viral on social media.
On receiving a complaint from Poovarasan, 26, the Thalaivasal police have registered a case against barber Logu and Annakili, who owns the building.
The barber in the shop at Attur denies a haircut on caste lines resulting in an argument. The woman defended his move and hurls abuses on Poovarasan.
As the quarrel heats up, a few villagers gather, but none comes in support of the complainant. The youth had taken a video of the incident and posted it online, which had now gone viral.
