Kathua rape and murder: Law Minister lauds the role of police

Jammu And Kashmir To Bring Own Order For Death Penalty For Child Rape

Mirwaiz said "while on one hand people of JK are demanding stern punishment to the culprits of minor Kathua girl, at the same time we demand reopening of all rape and murder cases since 1990 and to bring culprits to book after investigations".

The Crime Branch statement on the case comes in the wake of reports in print, electronic as well as social media regarding the case registered at the Hiranagar police station in Kathua district.

On January 23, the government had handed over the case to the crime branch of the state police which formed a Special Investigation Team and arrested eight people including two Special Police Officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destruction of evidence.

The report published by NDTV said that draft ordinance will be placed before the state cabinet next week for its passage since the order passed by the union cabinet is not applicable to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

On Apr. 10, the OPCW said it would deploy a fact-finding mission team to investigate the suspected chemical gas attack in Syria. President Donald Trump would not allow an armed confrontation between their two countries, RIA reported.

Hindi daily Dainik Jagran had reported on Friday that there were two versions of the girl's autopsy report, and while they suggest her hymen was not intact, they also say no spermatozoa was found in the girl's vaginal smear.

However, the spokesman said the reports circulated on various media platforms in the last few days are far away from truth. "The medical opinion also established beyond doubt that the victim was held in captivity and administered sedatives and the cause of her death was asphyxia leading to a cardiopulmonary arrest", it added. "So we added Section 376D [of the Ranbir Penal Code] to the case".

It also said that medical experts had confirmed the sedation, sexual assault and subsequent murder of the eight-year-old girl.

The infamous Kathua Rape Case involving the inhumane rape of the 8-year-old by multiple men inside the Devasthan prayer hall before she was strangled to death to allegedly "dislodge" a group of Bakherwal Muslim nomads from the Rasana village in Kathua has shaken the entire country. Recently, the lawyer Ankur Sharma, who is defending the accused, has made a sexist remark that being a woman the investigating officer can not have the intelligence to unearth the case.
