Massive protest in Delhi against Kathua, Unnao gangrapes

Massive protest in Delhi against Kathua, Unnao gangrapes

Taking action in the rape and murder case of an 8-year-old girl in the Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday terminated the services of 4 policemen accused in the case, and also called for the case to be heard in a fast track court.

The charge sheet revealed chilling details about how the girl was allegedly kidnapped, drugged and raped inside a place of worship before being killed.

Mufti had thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for defusing the situation. "We have made a request and issued a direction to them to convene an extra-ordinary meeting tomorrow to decide on the issue", he said.

She said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state and urged "New Delhi to wake up to the Kashmir cauldron".

The HRD minister rued that there had been no gender sensitisation for men in the country for generations, claiming it to be a reason behind the heinous crimes against women, and said, "No amount of condemnation is enough for such incidents". "Beyond that, I don't think there will be any impact of this incident or these developments on the coalition". "It is for any individual advocate to accept the brief and the bar association will not come in the way of defence nor will hamper the prosecution", BAK president Kirty Bhushan Mahajan said. "I was threatened yesterday with a message that "we will not forgive you", Rajawat said. The incidents which have been in public discussion the past two days would be considered shameful by any civilised society.

Western powers walk legal tightrope with Syria strikes
Nebenzya, accused the United States and its allies of reckless Middle East warmongering by threatening Syria with military force. US President Donald Trump has threatened to strike Syria in response to an alleged gas attack in the Arab country.

The girl and her family suffered a lot with her abduction and this addition has added misery to the ongoing pain.

According to the latest report in the Unnao rape case, the accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar, an MLA of the ruling BJP, was sent to seven-day custody by a Special CBI court on Saturday, while the medical examination of the 17-year-old victim was conducted at a hospital in Unnao earlier that day. Certainly, there was a lack of discretion.

Stressing the urgency of responding to the challenges in Jammu and Kashmir through tangible political measures before the crisis degenerates into a catastrophe, Mehbooba said the people of J&K, irrespective of their age, gender, status or political affiliation, had been suffering the disastrous consequences of the political uncertainties plaguing the state.

He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits.
