Fast track courts for trial of atrocity on Dalits
Mumbai: Trial of atrocity cases against Dalits should be conducted in fast track courts, National Commission for Scheduled Castes Vice-Chairman Rajkumar Verka said on Tuesday.
"Cases of atrocities pending for five years should be moved to fast track courts. Atrocity cases are registered, but only five per cent reach a logical end," Verka told reporters here.
Stating that such cases are rising in the country, he lamented that such cases have risen in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab.
Verka also expressed disappointment over sidelining of scheduled castes for posts of secretaries in the Union government. "There are around 500 secretaries (in the Union government), but not even a single is from the scheduled castes," he said.
He stressed on imparting quality education to Dalits. "Quality education should be given to Dalits. They should be taught in convent schools, so that their development will take place," he added.
