April 21:

Chandigarh, April 22: A physically challenged girl and her father were burnt alive when some persons set afire houses belonging to Dalits in a village in Haryana's Hisar district on Wednesday.

Eighteen-year-old Suman was charred to death while her father Tara Chand, 70, who suffered 90 per cent burns, died later, officials said adding the incident happened in Mirchpur village.

Members of a particular community raided the village and set afire some 12 to 15 Dalit houses, they said.

Old enmity between the two communities coupled with flaring up of the tension in the past few days led to today's incident, the officials said.

A few days back, some members of a community allegedly passed objectionable remarks against Dalit women.

This provoked retaliation from the Dalits who roughed up some youths of the rival community, villagers said.

Hisar Deputy Commissioner O P Sheron said that the extent of damage to property and the exact number of houses torched were being ascertained.

A large posse of policemen were deployed in the village where tension ran high.

Haryana's Director General Police Ranjiv Dalal said 25 people hade been arrested in connection with the arson.

The trial would be conducted in a fast-track court, he said.
