Srinagar: According to the new Deputy Cheif Minister of Jammu and Kashmir the Kathua rape and murder incident is just “a minor incident”. A brutal rape and murder of an eight year old girl, which actually shocked the entire country and protests were held around the world is a small thing for new deputy. The incident had sparked a nationwide outcry earlier this month after details of the crime were released in a police indictment, saying that it was designed to intimidate the girl’s Muslim nomad community and drive them out of the area in Jammu.
He said,”It is a minor incident. Such things do happen and they shouldn’t be blown up so much. We should ensure justice.” Mr Gupta is among the ieght new ministers of the state.
Police investigating the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua say that the girl was raped and brutally murdered. It was done to terrorize the local Muslim community. The investigators say the girl, who was kidnapped on January 10, was first raped the same day and was killed on January 14. Her body was found on January 17 in a forest.
It is an irony that two BJP leaders supported a rally which was organized in support of the accused. Later, both of the leaders resign from their ministerial positions.
