FARIDKOT: A 16-year-old dalit girl was abducted, raped and forced to eat some poisonous pesticide by an upper-caste man and dumped outside her house in a village in Faridkot district on Saturday morning.

According to the girl’s statement, she was abducted by three men around 11.30pm on Friday night from outside her house when she was going to a relative’s place nearby. Police have arrested two men, identified as Jagmeet Singh, the prime accused, and one of his accomplices Jagsir Singh. Search is on to nab Chhaina Singh, the third accused.

Faridkot, August 6

As many as 97 per cent of the students of government primary schools in Punjab belong to Dalit families, a survey conducted by the Government of India (GOI) has revealed.

The survey examined students of primary classes (I-V) in Punjab and found that only three per cent of the students belong to other categories, but they come from economically weaker families.

The government had conducted the survey during the evaluation of the National Programme of Nutritional Support to Primary Education.

The educational background of the parents is an important factor for enabling children to continue studies. The survey found that the parents of 50.51 per cent students of government primary schools in Punjab are illiterate. About 23.47 per cent parents have completed primary education while 15.66 per cent studied till class VIII.

In contrast, the parents of 24.12 per cent students of government primary schools in Haryana were either matriculate or above. In Punjab, the figure stands at 10.10 per cent.

In Kerala, the state known for high literacy rate, the percentage of such parents is 42.01, revealed the survey.

At national level, while the parents of 43 per cent students of government primary schools are engaged as labourers in agricultural and other activities, in Punjab the percentage of such parents is 70.65.

Further, the survey found that the intake of milk among 21 per cent of kids in Punjab was nil while 13.5 per cent never got fruits at home.

The students in government schools in urban areas mainly belong to SC/BC categories. In urban areas, the primary government schools cater to only very poor children belonging to SC/BC and other categories.

In the Government Middle School in Bazigar Basti of Faridkot, out of a total of 166 students, 154 belong to SC category while eight were from BC category. Only four students are from general category and they belong to economically weaker sections of society.
