No threat to PDP-BJP coalition in J&K: Ram Madhav

Antonio Guterres

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today lauded the people of Jammu for dismissing communal forces and their unwavering support for justice to an eight-year-old girl who was raped and killed in Kathua.

Further supporting his party leaders, Madhav said that both the leaders went to calm the crowd.

This is not the only incident of rape that has happened in India after the 2012 Delhi gang rape that shook the collective consciousness of the country.

The minor girl from the Bakerwal community was kidnapped on January 10; taken to a temple in Rasana village in Kathua.

"A criminal, after committing a crime, expects relief from his elected representative, and we are compelled to call up police and say this person needs to be spared", he had said.

They had sparked overwhelming public outcry after attending a rally in Hiranagar area of Kathua district organised by the Hindu Ekta Munch in favour of the seven people accused in the rape and murder of the minor.

The remarks of United Nations chief came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday finally broke his silence on the horrific Unnao and Kathua rape incidents and said that such incidents are "shameful and can not be part of a civilised society". When the sun goes down in the evening our feet will turn our way back home, back to the only place we think we're safe. "The job of the government is to build confidence and not to create mistrust among people", the BJP minister had said.

"They took the resignation of two ministers because as per media, their role was not positive, " said PDP leader and Works Minister Nayeem Akhtar.

The HEM president and BJP state secretary Advocate Vijay Sharma, also claims that the police was concocting a story in charge sheet, which can never be established on ground.

Reacting to the Kathua rape-murder case the Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi had on Friday said that her ministry will amend the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) ACT to bring in the death penalty for those found guilty of raping children aged 12 years or below. The chargesheet filed in the case last week revealed chilling details of the crime, including the fact that the crime was allegedly committed to scare away the minority community in the region.

However, once the crime branch arrested the prime accused, a 28-year-old special police officer named Deepak Khajuria, and then others, all of whom turned out to be Hindus, the manch changed course, calling the probe "biased", and demanding a CBI investigation into the case.
