Under a welfare scheme which was aimed at helping the Dalit community, the Madhya Pradesh government has allotted land to nearly 50 Dalit families in Sehore district in 2002. But even after more than a decade, these Dalit families are struggling and yet to get the control of the allotted land because of the presence of local muscle men, who have encroached their land. Some family members have died in the hope of justice. Baso Bai, a 50year old widow says,"last year I tried to sow crops but the encroachers beat me up. I went to the police but they harassed us. I then went to court and the decision was in favour. But even then I have not got control of my land". Now, We have all decided to end our lives.
