New Delhi: The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) has ordered a probe into the allegations of caste abuse by a Dalit student of Delhi University and sought a detailed report in this regard from the Delhi Police Commissioner.
"Following a complaint from the student, the Commission has decided to probe the matter. You are requested to submit facts, information and action taken on the allegations," NCSC said in a letter to Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Verma.

A student of DU's School of Open Learning (SOL) had yesterday alleged that a group of students of Hansraj College attacked him and passed casteist remarks when he was pasting posters of a protest in the institution's premises.
