PDP MLA from Rajouri questions handing over ‘rape and murder’ case of Kathua minor to Crime Branch

Ruling Peoples Democratic Party MLA from Rajouri, Chowdhary Qamar Hussain today termed as “incorrect” the decision of handing over the case of “rape” and murder of minor Kathua girl to Crime Branch.

Saying that the incident had pained him, Hussain said that handing over the case to Crime Branch didn’t seem right. “Crime Branch doesn’t seem to handle it well,” he claimed.

He said that the case should have been handled by the earlier SIT formed by local police and that the investigation should have been expedited. Hussain also said that those accused by the family of the eight-year-old girl should be questioned by the police.

Chairman All Tribal Coordination Committee, Talib Hussain on Thursday claimed that the real culprits in the rape and murder of minor Kathua girl were being shielded in a planned manner under the “guise of 15-year-old’s age”.

Hussain, who was detained during protests against the murder earlier this week, said that the persons involved in this “heinous crime” are not being punished because of “political influence”.

Addressing a presser after his release in Jammu, he said that circumstantial evidence on the basis of doctors’ version and people who gave her ceremonial bath suggest that girl was “brutally raped”.

“Her two ribs and a leg were broken. She was given electric shocks. She was clubbed by stones,” said Hussain.
