Madurai: An upper caste man who reportedly forced a 12-year-old Dalit boy to carry his footwear on his head and paraded him in a village in the district last week was arrested at Dindigul railway station on Sunday, police said.
The boy was returning home from school in Vadukapatti village after checking his annul exam results last Monday when the man caught him, forced him to carry the footwear on his head and paraded him.

The boy complained to his mother, a widow, who took up the matter with the man and his family, who refused to apologise, following which she filed a complaint with police.

The man`s father and brother were arrested yesterday, police said.
