Ahmedabad, Aug 1: Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati will on Thursday meet the four Dalits, who were thrashed by 'cow vigilantes' at Una in Gir-Somnath district and are admitted in the civil hospital here.

"It has been conveyed to us that Mayawatiji will visit Ahmedabad on August 4 to meet the victims of Una atrocity who are currently getting treated at the civil hospital here," state BSP unit secretary Pradeep Parmar said.

The four were shifted to Ahmedabad hospital on Friday last week as their health deteriorated soon after being discharged from Rajkot civil hospital. She will also meet the state team of BSP, Parmar said.

A day after being discharged from Rajkot civil hospital, the four Dalits -- Ashok Sarvaiya, Vashram Sarvaiya, Bechar Sarvaiya and Ramesh Sarvaiya -- were rushed to the city civil hospital after they developed serious complications.

Senior Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela met the victims at Ahmedabad hospital. On July 11, they were beaten up at Mota Samadhiyala village of Una taluka in Gir-Somnath district by a group of cow vigilantes for skinning a dead cow.

Several political leaders, including Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav, later visited the village and Rajkot civil hospital to meet the victims.

Police have so far arrested 26 people in connection with the incident and the probe into the matter is now being carried out by state CID-Crime.
