RYA called for a protest march and nukkad sabha in Birni block in Bagodar to protest against the misbehaviour and casteist abuses meted out to Dainik Hindustan journalist Shekhar Suman. The BDO of the Birni block of Bagodar had misbehaved with Shekhar Suman and hurled casteist abuses at him. The protestors demanded the arrest of the BDO. Writer’s association and AISA too joined the protests and the strength of their struggle forced the Birni police to register a case against the BDO Inder Kumar. However, the police also registered a case against Shekhar Suman on the plea of the BDO. In light of the recent events, RYA and AISA have resolved to intensify the struggle for the arrest of the BDO and also to ensure that the fabricated case against the journalist who himself was subjected to humiliation is withdrawn.
