Muzaffarnagar (UP): Several Dalits have staged a protest after some sanitation workers were allegedly not allowed to drink water from a temple in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district, police said on Sunday.

The workers were cleaning a drain outside the temple in Thana Bhawan town on Saturday.

The priest refused to allow them to take water from a handpump inside the temple and closed the door, an officer said.
