Pardhi is a nomadic tribal community, found mostly in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, who were among the 150+ tribes labelled “Criminal” by the British government under the 1871 Criminal Tribes Act. After India got Independence, these tribes were denotified but activists say the stigma attached to the Pardhi community is far from being over and the members of the tribe are often falsely accused in criminal cases.

The Dalit Voice’s Tweets about the incident

One of the child sat on the mother’s chest and one young boy is holding his father. This incident is only reported by one hindi news portal Patrika. This is not Yemen, this is India.
Pradhanmantri Awaas Yojana, Jan Dhan and all these fancy policies never touch these families.
