Mahoba: A Dalit man in Uttar Pradesh has asked the police to provide protection against the backdrop of locals threatening not to ride a horse during the wedding.
The police have been keenly watching the incident, but it is not yet known who is riding in the village. Villagers have threatened to kill the horsemen during the wedding procession, said groom Alak Ram.
For the past several years, there have been weddings in our village according to old traditions. I want to ride a horse for my wedding parade but some people from other communities are threatening to kill me, ”Ram said.
“My son’s wedding is scheduled for June 18,” said Ram’s father, Gayadin, who is seeking police protection as the villagers threaten to kill him. Former Uttar Pradesh Congress general secretary said the Congress had supported the groom’s family and sent a delegation of the two party leaders.
