Speaking on the occasion, the CM said, “There is a need for the society to change its attitude towards the Dalits. Especially the attitude and behaviour of the police towards the Dalits should be in favour of them and support them. It is unfortunate that when the police machinery is making a qualitative change in maintaining the law-and-order situation, such incident took place. We will not pardon such incidents. The government will not keep quite if any one does harm to Dalits. There will be swift action on the matter. There should not be any delay in inquiring about the culprits of lockup death and taking stern action against them. If need be, dismiss them from the service,” the CM instructed DGP Sri Mahender Reddy.
