Nearly six years ago, two people were burnt alive in an inter-caste violence in the same village.

Following the violence, CRPF troops had been deployed in the village to maintain peace, but the force was withdrawn last year.

A 20-member committee had also been formed earlier to maintain harmony in the village.

The CRPF was deployed the village when an alleged group of villagers belonging to upper caste torched over a dozen houses belonging to Dalits on April 21, 2010 in which a 19-year-old polio-stricken girl and her father were charred to death.

The incident was triggered by an argument between some Dalit youths and upper caste men after a person from the latter’s community had thrown a stone at a dog which was barking at him while he was passing through a Dalit locality in the village.
