Dalit families of Mirchipur village affected by caste violence called off their fortnight-long dharna following the state government's assurance that their demand would be fulfilled.

They Dalits had been on an indefinite dharna in front of the mini-secretariat here demanding adequate compensation for the victims of caste violence incident and rehabilitation outside the village, prompting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to visit the village.

They returned to their village last evening after getting assurance from the authorities, Deputy Commissioner O P Sheoran said in Hisar on Saturday.
