SHOCKING: Dalit Worker Assaulted, Forced to Apologize with Footwear in Mouth for Asking Salary!

A shocking incident unfolded in Morbi, Gujarat, where a Dalit employee was subjected to brutal assault and humiliation by his employer and six others after he dared to demand his unpaid salary. The victim, 21-year-old Nilesh Dalsaniya, had been employed by Vibhuti Patel, the owner of Raniba Industries Pvt. Ltd, on a monthly salary of Rs 12,000. However, his employment was abruptly terminated on October 18, leaving him without compensation for the 16 days he had diligently worked.

When Dalsaniya, accompanied by his brother and a neighbor, visited Vibhuti Patel’s office seeking his rightful dues, they were met with aggression. The FIR filed by the police details how Vibhuti Patel’s brother, Om Patel, and other accomplices assaulted the Dalit employee. Shockingly, Dalsaniya was taken to the terrace of the commercial complex, where he was further subjected to physical abuse by fellow employees.

The assailants, identified as Parikshit Patel, Om Patel, and other unidentified individuals, reportedly beat Dalsaniya with belts, kicked him, and punched him during the horrifying incident. In a particularly degrading act, Vibhuti Patel allegedly forced him to hold her footwear in his mouth, compelling him to apologize for daring to request his salary. Disturbingly, she also issued threats of harm if he ever returned to the Ravapar Crossroad area.

To add insult to injury, the attackers filmed the entire ordeal, coercing Dalsaniya to confess on video that he had come to Vibhuti’s office to extort money. Following the assault, the victim, a Dalit man, had to be taken to Morbi civil hospital for necessary medical treatment.

In response to this egregious act, the police have filed a case against Vibhuti Patel and the six other assailants. Pratipalsinh Zala, Deputy Superintendent of Police (SC/ST Cell), affirmed that all the accused would face charges of assault, criminal intimidation, rioting, and relevant sections of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Despite efforts to locate the accused individuals by conducting searches at their residences, they remain elusive. The police have formed three separate teams to intensify their efforts to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
