Sharada (9) and her brother Bhaskar (8) disappeared from their master’s house, a top government official in Hyderabad, some time ago. When the parents, impoverished tribals, complained to the police, they were arrested, confined in a lock up and thoroughly thrashed. What happened to the children? nobody seems to know!

Ashraf is seven years old. He was branded with a hot iron box by his master, a central government official in Delhi, for drinking the dregs from a glass of milk left by the master’s children.

It was poverty that drove thirteen year old Rekha to run from home. An ‘uncle’ who promised to help her sold her to a brothel where she is now paid ten rupees for serving twenty clients a day. There are hundreds of children like Rekha between the ages of 10 and 16 who are forced to sell their bodies for a living!

Hundreds of minor girls from Madhya Pradesh send to Gujarat as bonded labour and trafficking they are facing child abuse everyday.

‘I don’t care about school or playing. I don’t care about any of that. All i want is to bring my sister home from the bonded labour man. For six hundred rupees I can bring her home. That is our only change to bring her back.

“But we cannot have 600 rupees ... We will never have 600 rupees”


nine year old beedi roller,


My friends sister is ten years old. Every morning she goes to the bonded labour man, and every night at nine she comes home. He treats her cruelly; he hits her if he thinks she is working slowly or if she talks to the other children, he yells at her; he comes looking for her if she is sick and cannot go to work. I think this is very difficult for her.

The victim, Nirmala Kantheppa Harijan (14), was beaten up by one Ninganna Biradar who objected to her picking up a handful of green grass from his fields. Villagers watched helplessly as Biradar threatened them and dared anyone to stop him. Biradar was also said to have been angry over sheep belonging to Nirmala’s family grazing on his jowar crops a few days ago. Nirmala has no mother and her father was away in Maharashtra working as a labourer.

Bihar, Bijapur:  A Dalit girl was tied to a tree for over four hours and beaten up, accordin to reports from Budihal PH village in Sindagi taluk on Thursday.

"My daughter was given Rs 50,000. She was then slapped and handed over to some men who raped her," said the victim's father Dwivedi has denied all the allegations, countering them instead by saying that he caught the girl stealing clothes and cash from his house.

"The girl worked in the MLA's house. She ran away after stealing. The MLA complained and we arrested her," said SP Anil Das. The victim has refuted this. She claimed that the MLA threatened to kill her as well. The opposition Congress has taken up the girl's cause and UP Congress President Rita Bahuguna Joshi is expected to meet the victim.

Dec 2010. Lucknow: A minor Dalit girl was allegedly kidnapped and raped by a BSP MLA and then found herself behind bars after the MLA accused her of stealing from his house in Uttar Pradesh.

The man in question is Purshottam Narain Dwivedi, an MLA from Banda in Uttar Pradesh.

Dalits are often expected to carry out traditional roles for which they receive no compensation.  For example, they must play the drums in religious ceremonies and must remove dead animals.  Their participation in such acts only works to perpetuate the discrimination against them. Still the Dalit communities in south Tamilnadu are not allowed to cross the village by carrying the dead bodies to burry in their ground. Instead they have to go a round about may walk 4 kilometres to reach the graveyard in other direction.

The honor killing is one of the major human rights violation in India. The UDHR article 16 “Right to marry and to found a family” but the people are not allowed to marry other community persons whom they like. Suppose if they marry, the communities are ready to kill them to maintain their status in the village it known as “Honour Killing”. A 27-year-old youth was killed Amargarh village in Haryana's Jind district on Oct 23 2011 and his body dumped in a canal after his relationship with a dalit girl was found out
