The videos and pictures of the cruel incident shook Twitter, leaving netizens’ hearts crushed. Taking to their respective handles on the micro-blogging site, twitter users have however poured out rage and sorrow.

While one user wrote, “Raju and Savitri, a Dalit couple were brutally beaten up by MP police while they protested against the destruction of their crops. When the police didn’t stop they drank pesticides. And this gruesome crime took place infront of their children. #शिवराज_सिंह_इस्तीफा_दो (sic)”, another tweeted, “The photos of police caning the couple & children crying their heart out with the bodies of their parents. Being poor in India is the biggest CRIME (sic)”

As per the latest reports, the farmer Rajkumar and his wife Sabitri were taken to the nearest government hospital. While Sabitri is reportedly critical, the police have registered FIRs and Section 353 of the IPC (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty, Section 309 of the IPC (Attempt to suicide) against the couple and other locals present at the spot.

The newly-formed Shivraj Singh Chouhan government faced severe flak for running a “jungle raj” in the state after which the Guna SP and the Collector, who had ordered the eviction drive and defended police action, were removed from their posts on Wednesday, 15 July. A high-level inquiry has also been ordered into the matter, according to a tweet by Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra.
