HYDERABAD: Paying condolence to the victims of Tsundur massacre and condemning the judgment given by the High Court in April this year, acquitting 56 convicts in the massacre case, Tsundur Dalitula Nyaya Porata Committee is organising a ‘Walk for Justice’ from Guntur to Tsundur on August 5 and 6, Bojja Tarakam, chairman of the committee has said. The walk will cover Budampadu, Narakoduru, Vellaturu and Chebrolu villages in Guntur district.
On August 6, 1991, eight Dalits were hacked to death in Tsundur with over 400 people chasing them. A special court was set up which sentenced 21 accused to life imprisonment and 35 others to one year rigorous imprisonment. On April 22, 2014, a division bench of the High Court acquitted all the 56 convicted in the case.
‘‘We will also hold meeting at the villages explaining how the atrocious incident happened and about the judgment given,” Bojja Tarakam said here on Friday.
He said that appeals by the state government and families of victims’ families to set aside the High Court judgment will come for admission in the Supreme Court on July 30. ‘’We hope the appeals will be admitted by the apex court,” he said.
