Dausa violence: Death toll rises to 14; army pressed into service(Lead: Gujjars)

Fourteen people were killed and 80 others were injured after police opened fire on protesters of the Gujjars community, who were demanding Scheduled Tribe status for them in Dausa this morning.

Bundi/Dausa/Jaipur/New Delhi, May 29 : Fourteen people were killed and 80 others were injured after police opened fire on protesters of the Gujjars community, who were demanding Scheduled Tribe status for them in Dausa this morning.

The situation was so tensed that army personnel were pressed into service on the Jaipur-Agra highway to check the protestors from blocking traffic on the highway.

The dead include at least two policemen, while the injured list includes the Collector of Bundi, S S Bissa.

The police opened fire to disperse the 2,000-strong protesting Gujjars, when they turned violent. The protestors blocked the Jaipur-Agra Highway.

The Gujjar community is included in the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) list.

Meanwhile, Union Mines Minister Sis Ram Ola said the Bharatiya Janata Party Government in that state was continuously oppressing Dalits, farmers and villagers.

Ola who represents Jhunjhunu in the Lok Sabha, said the wounds of the shoot out on farmers at Rawala, Ghadsana, Soyla, and Tonk were still fresh, and the State Police fired bullets on villagers while they were protesting peacefully.

He also demanded a magisterial inquiry into the police firing.

Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said he issue could only be solved through a dialogue.

"We have told them that the issue can only be resolved through a dialogue and not through violence. We have told them that attacking policemen won't resolve the issue. And reservation or no reservation depends upon the constitutional amendment," Kataria told reporters in Jaipur.
