Three Dalits Murdered by Tamil Nadu Mob After Crossing Legs Before Caste Hindus

Three Dalit men were brutally hacked to death with machetes and other weapons by a group of upper caste Hindus in India’s southern Tamil Nadu state Monday night. The men were attacked for sitting with their legs crossed, which the caste Hindus took as a grave insult.

The attack occurred in Kachanatham village, in Tamil Nadu’s Sivaganga district, DNA India reported.
