Govt''s image being sullied through fake atrocity cases: police

Lucknow, Novermber, 18 : Uttar Pradesh police today accused some elements of trying to sully the state government''s image by lodging "fake" cases of atrocities against Dalits, using a woman belonging to the section as a political tool.

"Some elements are trying to malign the image of government in the cases related to atrocities on dalits", Additional Director General, Law and order Brijlal told reporters here and claimed that a Dalit woman Rajrani alias Rajo was taken to Delhi for the purpose by some persons, about whom he did not elaborate.

He said that the woman, who had registered five cases including that of rape in Jalaun district, was being used as a political tool to defame the state government.

"As far as rape charges are concerned, they were found to be fake. Two other cases have also been found to be fake and the police could also take action against Rajo for lodging fake cases," he said.

Asserting that checking atrocities against Dalits was Mayawati government''s top priority, the official said he himself kept an eye on such cases.

The Mayawati government is under attack from the opposition parties, espedcially the Congress and the National Commission for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes for alleged growth of atrocities against Dalits in the state.
During his recent visit, Chairman of the Commission PL Punia had alleged that the state government despite being headed by a Dalit, was not sensitive to Dalit issues.
