The assistant regional manager of UP State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) resigned after the District Magistrate of Ballia allegedly misbehaved and made casteist remarks against him.

Ballia's District Magistrate Bhawani Singh Khangraut, however, has denied the allegation. saying he had not misbehaved with the officer.

According to reports, ARM Bindu Prasad, in his resignation letter, submitted on Monday, said he is a Dalit and because of this, Khangraut "misbehaved" with him and made "casteist" remarks against him.

Allegedly, the District Magistrate also dragged Khangraut by his shirt's collar.

"As I belong to SC category...the District Magistrate made casteist remarks. Due to this, I am feeling humiliated and I am tendering my resignation," the ARM said in his letter.

UPSRTC Managing Director Raj Shekhar said he has received Prasad's resignation letter and has sought a factual report on the matter. "I will apprise the government about it after I get the report," he said.
