The angry mob attacked the police party and the Kamptee police station too. In reaction the police lathicharged them and used tear-gas shells and air firing to disperse them.
The TOI also reported that mob attacked the house of local congress MLA Nitin Raut too.
However, Nitin Raut himself is a Dalit and he is the person who raised the voice about the incident. Attacking his house clearly shows that somewhere there is a factionalism figures within the dalits too on this issue.
