Gujarat, India (Web Desk): The teenaged boy was attacked in Limbodara village in Gandhinagar district around 5.30 pm when he was returning from school after an examination.
The Indian media reported, unidentified men stabbed a 17-year-old Dalit boy Tuesday evening in a Gandhinagar village, for sporting a moustache.
Earlier, two Dalits had been attacked, allegedly by upper caste Darbars, for the same reason.
The third attack prompted over 300 Dalit men from villages around Sanand to adopt as their WhatsApp display picture a logo of a twirled moustache with a crown and Mr Dalit written on it. It came two days after a Dalit youth was killed in a Borsad village in Anand, allegedly by upper caste men, for watching a garba at a temple.
The teenaged boy was attacked in Limbodara village in Gandhinagar district around 5.30 pm when he was returning from school after an examination. Hours before the attack, the boy had told the Indian media that he too was assaulted on September 25 when he was with Piyush Parmar (24) who was attacked, allegedly by Darbars, for sporting a moustache.
