Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India] July 10 (ANI): Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Wednesday condemned the killing of a Dalit man by his in-laws in Gujarat.
"Condemn the brutal killing of Hareshbhai Solanki. Caste violence and killings are not a part of Gujarati culture," he said in a tweet.
"These developments are alien to our state and reflect the failure of the government to curb anti-social activities in Gujarat," the tweet further read.
In a gruesome incident of cast violence, Haresh Kumar Solanki on Sunday was killed by his in-laws who belonged to an upper caste community. According to the police the family wanted to break the couple's marriage. (ANI)
