Police on Tuesday registered a case against three Caste Hindu money lenders in Villur here, for allegedly attacking a Dalit farmer after he refused to pay exorbitant interest demanded by them.

Police said the case was booked against Gnanasambanthan, his wife Tamil Selvi and a relative Karthigai Selvan of Muniyandipuram based on a complaint lodged by G Ramaswamy (45).

In his complaint Ramasamy said he had taken a loan of  Rs 10,000 from Gnanasambanthan. He had paid several thousands as interest alone for the sum. However, Gnanasambanthan demanded that he pay another  Rs 50,000 towards interest. Meanwhile on Tuesday, Gnanasambanthan, his wife and relative reportedly visited Ramasamy’s house demanding Rs 50,000. When Ramasamy refused, the trio allegedly attacked him with slippers. Based on Ramasamy’s complaint, Villur police registered a case under many sections of the IPC and SC/ST(Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
