Today stands as the day when exactly 8 years ago, a Dalit family was destroyed. Surekha Bothmange and her daughter Priyanka were paraded naked and then gang raped. Priyanka’s brothers Roshan and Sudhir were lynched. This happened in a village called khairlanji in Maharashtra. Bhaiyyalal Bothamange is the only one family member who is alive.
The ones who perpetrated this gruesome killing are yet not all punished. Some of them still roam around the village freely. Justice has yet not been delivered.
It is important to talk of this and revive these memories, to know these are not forgotten. That they can happen today too.
