Ahmedabad:

Fresh protests have been reported across Gujarat by the Dalit community against the assault on fellow community members for allegedly killing a cow. Chief Minister Anandiben Patel is also scheduled to visit Una town today and meet the victims.

Meanwhile, a strong protest over the issue has also been reported from Rajya Sabha.

"(The) Chief Minister will visit Una town tomorrow and meet the Dalit youths, who became victims of atrocities. She will also meet family members of these victims. She will be accompanied by Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Ramanlal Vora and Chief Secretary G R Aloria," an official release said.

The incident had come to light after a purported video showing some persons, believed to be 'gau-rakshaks', publicly beating four partially-stripped Dalit youths at Una town of Gir-Somnath district on July 11, had gone viral.

The Chief Minister condemned the incident and appealed the people to maintain peace.
