Madhya Pradesh: What Sidhi Urination Incident Victim Dashmat Rawat And Brahmin Organisation Have Said?

Sidhi: The Sidhi urination incident victim Dashmat Rawat in Madhya Pradesh has appealed to the state government to release the accused involved in the act. The victim, who belongs to a tribal community, said the accused Pravesh Shukla has realised his mistake.

Accused Shukla was arrested on Wednesday. The video of the incident had gone viral on social media platforms on Tuesday. After this the police registered a case against the accused and arrested him.

Besides facing relevant charges under the IPC and the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, action has also been initiated under the stringent National Security Act, against Shukla, who is currently lodged in a jail.

An alleged illegal portion of the house belonging to Shukla in Sidhi was also demolished.

Victim Dashmat Rawat said that he has urged the government that a mistake has been committed by the accused. Now Pravesh Shukla should be released. Whatever has happened in the past, he has understood his mistake, Rawat told media.

‘Nothing more to demand from govt except construction of a road’

Rawat also said that except the construction of a road in the village, he has nothing more to demand from the government.

The urination episode has triggered a political row in Madhya Pradesh. The Congress has alleged that the accused was linked to a local Bharatiya Janata Party legislator. But the saffron party has denied its connection with him in any way.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday washed the feet of the victim at the CM's residence in Bhopal and also apologised to him over the humiliating incident. But the opposition party dubbed Chouhan's move as mere drama.

The state government also sanctioned financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh to the victim and provided an additional sum of Rs 1.5 lakh for the construction of his house.

Brahmin organization will move HC 

A Brahmin organisation on Friday opposed the demolition of a part of the house of Shukla saying Shukla’s act was unacceptable but his family members should not be punished for his behaviour.

The Madhya Pradesh unit of the Akhil Bharatiya Brahmin Samaj said it will move the high court against the demolition at the house belonging to Shukla’s father.

The Samaj's Sidhi district president Rakesh Dubey along with other office-bearers of his unit has handed over Rs 51,000 to the Shukla family on behalf of Mishra, he said.

Acquaintances of the Shukla family said structures spread over 400 square feet, including the porch of the house, were demolished by the authorities claiming it was illegal. Shukla's parents and other family members live in the house.

Mishra said they will move the MP High Court in Jabalpur against the demolition at the Shukla family house.
