Taking suo motu cognisance of media reports, the commission asked the district magistrate and superintendent of police to submit the reports within four weeks.

The action came after a Dalit boy reportedly married an upper caste girl of the Rod community last week, following which the community members attacked the Dalits injuring 10 people including seven policemen.
