Hundreds of Indian Security Forces enforced a Curfew on a Tense District after a Mob set fire to the homes of two Political Figures from the Country’s low-caste Dalit Community.

Amid heightened Communal Tensions over caste rights, some 5,000 people angered by earlier Dalit protests torched the Houses of a State Legislator and Former Lawmaker in the State of Rajasthan.

According to Local Officials neither was at home at the time.The Incident followed violent Nationwide protests by tens of thousands of Dalits on Monday which left at least nine dead.The Dalit have been enraged at a Supreme Court ruling that they say weakens a law intended to protect lower caste Communities.

The Court last month banned the Automatic Arrest of people accused of attacking or harassing Dalits and other Marginalized Groups.
