Mysuru, December 23- Various Dalit organisations of the taluk staged a protest on Friday, condemning the rape and murder of a juvenile girl, Danamma in Vijayapura recently.
Taluk Panchayat Standing Committee president S H Ramu said that the silence of the state government towards the murder of Danamma raises several questions. He alleged that the BJP, with its communal mindset, is not protesting against the murder of the Dalit girl. The protesters urged the state government to hand over the case to CBI.
