NAMAKKAL: Several dalit political parties and outfits, including VCK, BSP and CPI(ML), have condemned the “honour killing” of the dalit engineer V Gokulraj. They protested outside the mortuary at the Salem Government Super Specialty Hospital and also in front of the Salem collectorate’s office for the second day on Friday.
“He was kidnapped from Tiruchengodu in Namakkal and murdered by a caste outfit.
Love affair with a goundar caste (BC) girl was the reason behind this murder,” said A Chandramohan, state committee member of CPI(ML).
Talking to TOI, Chandramohan alleged that the police’s refusal to register a murder case and has let the culprits avoid arrest. He added that police attempted to project the death as a suicide. The state government must intervene immediately to arrest the culprits, he demanded.
