Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday expressed concern regarding crime against Dalits and urged the central government to treat them with care and give full protection.

"Incident in Una is organised crime against Dalits. I urge Central Govt to treat Dalits with care & give full protection. This is unacceptable," she said in a tweet.

Dalit youths at Una in Gujarat were paraded and flogged for allegedly killing a cow. The incident caused a nationwide outrage after its video went viral. The youths, however, alleged they were skinning the dead cow and had not killed it.
