Case summary

Dangawas village situated in Nagaur District is having a population of fifteen thousand Jats whereas there are barely three thousand Dalit families. There was a old dispute over 23 Bigha land between Kana Ram Jat and Ratna Ram Meghwal in fact this land was legally belong to Meghwal community and the ancestors of the Ratna Ram Meghwal. Ratna Ram Meghwal built a Kacha house over the land and started living there. The village is 3 kilometres far from the field. On 14th May, 2015, the Jat community convened a Khap Panchayat to resolve this matter once for all and summoned Ratna Ram Meghwal but Meghwal refused to join the Khap Panchayat. On the refusal of Meghwal community, a mob of Jats marched Meghwal’s house with guns, rods and sticks in dozens of tractors were brought for which Jat’s with gun, axes, and other weapons marched towards the house of Meghwal. Jat supporters first crashed the house of Ratna Ram Meghwal with tractors. Thereafter they mercilessly chased and crashed the Dalits by tractors and left five people including three Meghwal’s and one Rampal Gosain dead and fourteen Dalits including six women seriously injured. Dalit women were brought out from the crashed house and beaten badly. There were four tractors chasing women to crash them and later beat them with sticks. The mob also torched and burnt tractor-trolley and four motorcycles of Meghwals. Hundreds of Meghwals fled away from their houses and still scared of attack from Jat community because entire administration and elected representatives are dominated. It is also alleged that Dalit women were also molested by the Jat people. The injured Meghwal victims were hospitalized in the Merta City Hospital but the Jat mob attacked in the hospital too to kill the injured people. From that hospital, the injured were referred to Jawahar Lal Nehru Hospital, Ajmer. Later on  two Meghwal victim were died because of the critical condition.
