Chikmagalur (Karnataka), July 28 (ANI): The Dalit activists today staged a protest march against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Sangh Parivar against the attack on a Dalit family by the Bajrang Dal activists over suspicion of cattle theft and cow slaughter in Kondur village of Karnataka's Chikmagalur district. The agitators also demanded a ban on 'anti-Dalit' Sangh Parivar outfits.
