Sumbal: Four days after a youth was arrested for allegedly raping a three-year-old girl in Bandipora district of north Kashmir, police sources said preliminary medical examination has revealed he is not a minor. They even demanded the accused be hanged.
The spokesman said a separate inquiry has also been ordered to check the veracity of the age of the accused and ascertain the authenticity of the age certificate.
The assault is the latest incident of violence against women in India. Protesters closed the Srinagar-Baramulla highway.
On Monday, allegations emerged that the principal of another school issued a certificate for the accused that he was a minor. "We appeal to the public to stay calm and not heed to any rumours", Bandipora Deputy Commissioner Shahbaz Mirza was quoted as saying, after protests were recorded in as many as 12 locations on Sunday.
"Justice will be done and the culprit will be given fair punishment as per the law", he said.Читайте также: Developer’s LinkedIn profile indicates Red Dead Redemption 2 is headed to PC
A special investigation team (SIT) has been formed to investigate the case.
Reports said members of Jammu & Kashmir Ittehadul Muslimeen headed by Maulana Masroor Abbas Ansari (son of Hurriyat leader Abbas Ansari) assembled at Pratap Park area at Residency Road in Lal Chowk and protested against the incident.
"This is a horrific incident and something that is very rare in a place like Kashmir". District officials assured the people that the case would be fast-tracked. "It is expected from the governor administration to rise up to the occasion and serve exemplary punishment to the person behind the crime that has send shivers down the spine of every right-thinking person".
In January 2018, an eight-year-old girl was abducted, starved for a week and murdered after she was raped by several people in the southern Kathua area. What kind of a sick pervert would do this? "All of Kashmir stands in unison", said Mr. Farooq. Governor Satyapal Malik spoke to religious leaders of different communities and asked them to condemn the gruesome act unanimously and to request the people to maintain peace and not to let anti-socials to take advantage of the situation. "I also urge the society to strongly come out against the heinous crime notwithstanding their caste, creed and sectarian considerations", he said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
