Abstract
As per official statistics, every eighteen minutes a crime is being committed on a Dalit (Teltumbde, 2008: 9). Every day three Dalit women are raped, two Dalits are murdered, two Dalit houses are burnt and eleven Dalits are beaten. Various reports of the National Crime Records Bureau and the National Commission for Scheduled Castes indicate an alarming increase in violence against Dalits. Violence against Dalits is not a new phenomenon. However, the reportage of violence against Dalits is a recent affair. This research primarily aims at analysing the historical, socio-cultural and legal context of violence against Dalits in contemporary India.
