As of 2020, every 10 minutes a crime is committed against a Dalit in India and every day 8 Dalit women are subjected to sexual abuse.

This article collates some of the available reports on the daily occurrences of caste-based atrocities in 2023. The purpose is to document caste atrocities and thereby bring them to the notice of politically sensitised citizens as well as future historians.
