The IMA also said a thousand doctors have died due to Covid so far, the actual numbers may be far higher. The IMA only keeps a record of its nearly 3.5 lakh members. India, however, has more than 12 lakh doctors.

The family of a Dalit man has alleged that he was assaulted by a mob for sitting on a chair in the village panchayat office in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur district. The incident transpired on Saturday when the man was assaulted by a group of people which resulted in the man facing serious injuries. The incident took place in Chauka village, which comes under Matguan police station limits.

The police, however, have abstained to pick up the cast angle in the matter and have called it a fight breaking out due to enmity between the parties. Bijawar’s sub-divisional officer, Raghu Kesri, informed the media on Monday that the incident escalated due to an enmity between the parties. While talking to the media, the police administration addressed that the case has been registered and efforts are being made to arrest the accused in the matter.

The police’s remark contradicts the comments and statements made the by the kin of the 30-year-old Dalit man. The wife of the victim had accused Rohit Singh Thakur, the person identified for assaulting the Dalit man, of being enraged by the Dalit man sitting on a seat in front of him and also added that the accused proclaimed that only Thakurs can sit on a seat.

Subsequently, after Thakur’s remark, the Dalit Man was subjected to being assaulted by Thakur and his accomplices which resulted in the man being seriously injured.

Arvind Kumar Ahirwar, Chauka Village Panchayat secretary, also confirmed the wife’s allegations as he told the press that Thakur had objected to the Dalit man sitting on a chair in front of him and added that the man was beaten up for this reason alone. He further added that the victim had come to his office to give the documents for the construction of a well.

The Panchayat secretary also added that after the incident on Saturday, Thakur with his entourage again reached the Dalit man’s home and attacked him on Sunday. The village sarpanch confirmed the allegations made by the victim’s wife, and also confirmed the attack on the victim on Sunday evening.

The Victim, according to reports, is undergoing treatment at the district hospital after suffering fractures on both hands, injuries on the head, and other body parts as well.

Liquor

A video is doing rounds on social media where a mob can be seen taking liquor from an unidentified car in the dry state of Bihar. According to some media reports, the incident took place in the city of Siwan district.

A video of this incident was shared by a media platform Unseen India on Twitter. They wrote that people started looting the liquor found in a car.

Bihar government banned the consumption and trading of liquor in the state in 2016 and also made a provision of up to 10-year-jail terms. According to a Bihar government study, more than 80 per cent of the state population was in favour of liquor prohibition.

The study claimed that only 13.8 per cent of the respondents were against liquor prohibition in the state.

Chanakya Law University’s Dean Professor SP Singh said that the sample size was 22,184. Of this, around 54 per cent were males (11,886) and 46 per cent (10,298) were females. From the age group point of view, about 80 per cent of respondents were below the age of 44 years, while 20 per cent belonged to the 45-60 plus years age group.

He said that almost all women were in the support of the liquor ban in Bihar and did not want it to be revoked ever due to its positive implications, primarily being increased in income due to savings from expenditure on liquor. Around 87 per cent of the respondents vouched for an increase in average household income, which was spent on education, nutrition etc.

In August 2022, the Bihar government amended the liquor policy and decided that those who were caught drinking alcohol for the first time would be released after paying a fine.

Speaking in the Bihar assembly in April 2022, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that those who drink were mahapaapi (sinners) and they were not Hindustani (Indian).
