A case has been registered in Hyderabad against prominent Dalit writer Kancha Ilaiah for hurting the sentiments of the the Arya Vysya community through his book 'Samajika Smugglurlu Komatollu' (Vysyas are social smugglers).

The case was filed by a 22-year-old student who approached a local court stating that the book had hurt the religious feelings of all Hindu communities, Dalits and others apart from the Arya Vysya community.
