The death of Mohammad Akhlaq in Dadri’s Bisara village may have been shocking, but in villages within a 10-kilometre radius of the crime scene, it is hardly surprising. For four months now, a little-known organisation called the Samadhan Sena has kept the communal pot boiling in villages across Dadri, drumming up issues like Muslim shops in Hindu areas, loudspeakers in mosques and cow slaughter.
The Samadhan Sena, unknown outside Dadri, was set up in June by Govind Chaudhary, a resident of Virpura village. His house in Virpura was locked on Wednesday as was the Sena’s office in Jarcha village. The office was shut a few weeks ago, after Chaudhary was arrested for attacking the Jarcha village pradhan’s son. He was released on bail earlier this week.
