By Muslim Mirror

In a new low, a Dalit man has been lynched  in Singampalli village panchayat of Rangampeta mandal in East Godavari district on Wednesday for plucking mangoes from an orchard belonging to an upper caste man.


As per the reports that have poured in, Bikki Srinivas (30) allegedly stole mangoes from an orchard in the village.

The victim was caught by the orchard owner while he was allegedly plucking the mangoes. After being caught, the victim was thrashed by sticks, leading to his death. Later, he was taken to the local panchayat office where his body was hanged to the ceiling.

The victim’s family rushed to panchayat office after they learnt about the death of Srinivas. The family members reportedly found injury marks on Srinivas’ body and claimed he was murdered.

After the news spread about the Dalit man’s death, around 1,000 villagers took out a protest march demanding action against the guilty.

 A police investigation is under progress.


  1. The death of the stealer is really shocking and condemnable.The thrashers must be punished.Everywhere if any burglar/thief is caught,he is beaten up/punished irrespective of his caste,creed community etc.Here the unauthorised plucker was incidentally a dalit boy.But the way of projecting the matter is that he was thrashed only for becoming dalit,cannot be accepted.The report seems biased with an intention to create division.Such fabricated reporting should be stopped.
