Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister
Prithviraj Chavan on Thursday said that government had taken a
serious view of the incident at Mulgaon in Satara district
where a Dalit woman was allegedly stripped and beaten by
members of an upper caste family.
The woman`s son had eloped with a girl from the family,
which led to the Monday`s assault on her, according to the
police. Four persons have been arrested in the case.
Chavan, who hails from Satara district, said that a case
had been registered under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities)
"Some arrests have been made. I am constantly monitoring
the investigation. If the need be, the case will be tried in
a fast-track court," Chavan said.
