Jaise wo nange ho sakte waise hi wo mujhe maarne ki koshish bhi kar sakte hai (Just as they were ready to get naked, they were ready to kill me too). —Praveen Yadav, Station Officer, Dankaur This was SO Dankaur, Praveen Yadav’s reply when The Quint asked him why he slapped an ‘attempt to murder’ charge against the male members of the Dalit family, that’s at the centre of a stripping controversy on 7 October. Yadav even undid his shirt to show us an incongruously fresh scratch-mark on his chest. Later, he even sent this reporter a selfie (below) via Whatsapp. Conflicting Witness Reports On 8 October, a video emerged of a Dalit family being stripped and dragged by police personnel at a market in Dankaur, Greater Noida, UP. The incident happened a day earlier when Sunil Gautam, the head of the Dalit family went to the police to register a robbery complaint. According to a few witnesses, the Dalit family, comprising two men and three women, stripped themselves of their clothing in protest when the police refused to register the FIR. Other witnesses tell a different tale (quotes below video).
