Bhopal: Chairman of National Commission for Scheduled Castes P L Punia today said Madhya Pradesh has of late witnessed a rise in the atrocities against Dalits and the BJP-ruled state ranked third in the country in this regard.

"The atrocities against Dalits in the state is on the higher side and the unfortunate part is that in many cases even reports are not registered," Punia told reporters.
