Jammu: The parents of the eight year old girl of Rasana village in Hiranagar tehsil of Kathua, who was killed and raped few days back, met the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti in Jammu.
They sought an expeditious probe into the killing of their daughter and bringing the culprits to justice.
The Chief Minister assured them that the Government has already constituted a Special Investigating Team to probe the case and in the meantime the case has also been handed over to Crime Branch for further investigations.
Minister for Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs and Tribal Affairs, Choudhary Zulfkar Ali was present on the occasion.
Recently, in a press conference, Chairman All Tribal Coordination Committee, Talib Hussain 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.
