Case summary

Geetanjali Sethy a dalit  girl is married to Bikaram Nath s/o Benudhar Nath belongs to an upper caste  community of Sangaon village of Marsaghai PS in Kendrapara dist. Both Geetanjali and Vikram were staying in Paradeep after  love marrage, however, after Phailin, they  returned  to Sanagaon to live with  parents. This did not go well with upper caste neighbours. They started misbehaing Geetanajli as she  is a  dalit and disallow her to use tube well. They also boycotted Benudhar\'s family to enter the temple. Discontented with the above situation, Geetanjali filed a complain at Marsaghai PS about the incident.   But Police did not register the case and kept it pending for two months and asked the parties to settle the matter amicably.
