A brutal murder has left Tamil Nadu shaken, both because of its gruesome nature as well as the fact that it showed an extremely violent manifestation of casteism. Last week, a 13-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly beheaded by her neighbor in front of her mother's eyes near Attur in Tamil Nadu's Salem district. Dinesh Kumar, who belonged to a higher caste, allegedly shouted caste slurs as he attacked the young girl and decapitated her using a sickle. The victim is reported to have accused Kumar of making sexual advances towards her.
