Kathua rape case: Asifa's family flees village

BJP MLA Kuldip Singh Sengar speaks to the media outside CM’s office in Lucknow on Monday

BJP MLA Kuldip Singh Sengar speaks to the media outside CM’s office in Lucknow on Monday

CM Mufti took to Twitter and said, "The Law will not be obstructed by the irresponsible actions & statements of a group of people".

JAMMU Amid mounting outrage over the brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, Union Minister VK Singh perhaps best summed up the mood of shame and mortification when he said, "We have failed Ashifa as humans".

On January 14, Sanji's nephew strangled her to death and hammered her with a stone to make sure she was dead.

She further slammed the Uttar Pradesh police for not arresting the Unnao rape case accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar despite an FIR against him. In fact, the people who were opposing the Crime Branch investigation into the case were also trying to raise accusations against our team.

"If the government is serious on the issue and wants justice is delivered in the case why doesn't it stop those including BJP ministers who have openly sided with the accused and even instigated the local Hindus against the victim's family and rest of the Muslim community in Kathua", Hussain asked.


The separatist Hurriyat Conference, led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Thursday accused the state administration and police of being "mute spectators" while the Jammu Bar Association, with the active support of Bhim Singh's Jammu Kashmir Panthers Party, was enforcing bandhs and taking out rallies "in favour of the rapists and murderers". Mid-day accepts no responsibility or liability for its dependability, trustworthiness, reliability, and data of the text.

Akin to the Amarnath Shrine land row in 2008, the recent rape-murder of an 8-year-old Gujjar girl in the Kathua district has again created a divide among the two regions, Jammu and Kashmir, on communal and political lines.

"We have arrested SPO Deepak Khajuria for his involvement in the case of kidnapping and killing of the minor girl", Additional Director General of Crime Branch, Alok Puri said. "The media should report events in an honest manner", Slathia said. "They took her and kept her inside the "devasthan" under the table over two plastic mats and then covered her", it said, adding that they kept the girl there for days. Sanji Ram raped a girl because she belonged to the nomadic Muslim Bakarwal community and he wanted that this community moves out of Rassana village.

Investigating officers head constable Tilak Raj and sub-inspector Anand Dutta have been charged with accepting a bribe of Rs400,000 from Sanji Ram to hush up the crime.
