Congress condemns tragic death of Dalit kids in Ballabhgarh


New Delhi, Oct.21: Condemning the tragic death of two children in Ballabhgarh yesterday, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has said the government in power needs to give answers instead of pointing fingers at others.

“The larger question is why this internal provocation, suspicion, distrust, finger pointing aggression is growing so rapidly. This question, people in power need to answer. The sooner they answer, the better it is,” Singhvi told ANI here.

“I don’t have the words to condemn the incident. This was absolutely a tragic and horrendous death of two innocent sleeping children, one of them hardly an infant. I cannot imagine such unthinkable barbaric cruelty. Punishing such people with the death penalty will be a minor thing,” he added.

A Dalit family of four, including two children, was set afire inside their house allegedly by members of the Rajput community in Sunped village in Ballabhgarh, Faridabad District of Haryana, early on Tuesday.

The deceased Vaibhav (2 years) and Divya (10 months) died before reaching the Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi.

Their mother Rekha (22) was admitted to the ICU with serious burns while her husband Jitender (26), a medical attendant at a hospital, escaped with minor burns on his hands. (ANI)
