Dalit Atrocity, Times Of India Style

The headlines, Dalit man lynched in Bihar
The article,
SAMASTIPUR (BIHAR): A dalit was allegedly beaten to death by his neighbours
after he demanded the money he owed to them in Samastipur district, police said
on Friday. Superintendent of Police Surendra Lal Das said that Lakendra Paswan (35) was tied with a bamboo tree and lynched for daring to ask for payment from one Heeralal Paswan, under whom he was working. The accused, however, alleged that Lakendra was drunk when he entered the house of Amarnath Paswan, Heeralal's relative, and misbehaved with his wife, following which they beat him to death on Thursday. A high level team of the state Human Rights Commission will make an in depth inquiry into the killing of the dalit, official sources said. Amarnath Paswan has been taken into custody and efforts were on to arrest the other accused persons.

Two Dalits are fighting each other but on reading the headline, I get different impression. Disingenuous turd, Arindam Sengupta(TOI Editor), christian missionaries owe you gratitude or maybe they have already thanked you via a 'bhoora lifafa' (brown envelope stuffed with dollars).
