Denied access to crematorium, Dalits ‘airdrop’ dead in Tamil Nadu

After the construction of the Arasalanthapuram-Narayanapuram bridge across the river, members of other castes have encroached upon the path leading to the river and denied Dalits access to carry their dead through their farmlands. Vijay, 21, nephew of Kuppan, said: “On Saturday, when we tried to take my uncle’s body through the land strips, watchmen guarding it refused us entry. Fearing clash, villagers used a cradle to drop the body from the bridge and cremated it.”
