Calling upon opposition parties not to give a caste colour to the killings of two Dalit children in Faridabad and the death of a Dalit boy at Gohana, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said the two incidents were the result of personal disputes and not of castes.

Khattar, who was speaking to mediapersons after announcing the new integrated licensing policy here, said the law and order situation would not be allowed to be disrupted at any cost.

On Tuesday’s incident at Sunperh in Faridabad district, Khattar said that after taking an immediate cognisance of the incident, the government had provided a relief of Rs 10 lakh and announced a government job to a member of the family, besides ordering a CBI inquiry.

On the Gohana incident, in which the body of a 14-year-old Dalit boy accused of stealing pigeons was found on Thursday, Khattar said it was a dispute between two groups and police had called them for reaching a compromise. He said the preliminary investigation showed that it was a suicide. The chief minister said the family had been assured a government job.

“The matter is being investigated and the post-mortem reports are awaited. The reasons behind the incidents could be ascertained only after getting the reports,” he said, adding that “it was not fair to give caste colour to the two incidents”.

In reply to a question, he said that with a view to ensuring the effective implementation of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in the state, regular meetings of state- and district-level vigilance and monitoring committees were being held, unlike in the past when the previous Congress government had not organised these for two years.
