Jaipur. Seven decades after independence in Rajasthan, even today in some places people do not like the Dalit groom to sit on a mare. Its hallmark has been seen once again. In Kotputli area of Jaipur district, the Dalit groom killed the pylon sitting on a mare and some villagers did not like it. He pelted stones on the procession in the middle of the police encounter. Due to this there was panic among the people of the wedding party and the bride. Four wedding processions are said to have been injured in stone pelting. Many vehicles were damaged there.
According to the information, the incident is of Kairadi ki Dhani near Rajnota village of Kotputli in Jaipur district. Here on Thursday night, the groom of the Dalit family had reached the village with a procession. Here some anti-social elements found it exasperating for the groom to sit on the mare.

The processions ran here and there to save their lives, due to
which there was an atmosphere of chaos. The people of the marriage party and the bride’s side started running here and there to save their lives.

After this, the bride and groom took seven rounds amidst police protection.
Anger prevailed in the Dalit society Due to the
incident, resentment prevailed in the Dalit society. The family alleges that about 10 days ago, the police was informed about the incident. Despite this, even women constables were not arranged for the safety of women on the occasion. In the custody of the family and the Barati police, some societies became victims of the petty mentality of the Kantakas. This incident has caused outrage in the Dalit community.
