B-town 'appalled' by Kathua rape case

Protestors block the Jammu Pathankot highway in Kathua during the Jammu Bandh on Wednesday

The heinous rape and murder of the eight-year-old Asifa, of the nomadic Muslim Bakerwal community, in Kathua, Jammu, has completely shocked the nation. In Bengaluru, people are being urged to come out on the streets and make fellow citizens aware of just why they need to be furious, if they aren't already.

Breaking his silence on the rape-murder of a minor in Jammu and Kashmir and the rape of another in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday promised justice and said the incidents that have caused outrage have shamed the country.

The Chief Minister is also lated to announced the termination of the accused police officers against whom a chargesheet has been filed.

According to the reports, the girl had taken some cows out to graze and was searching for a missing cow when she was abducted. Her body was found later in the forest, strangled, near the temple.

Meanwhile, Saturday Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti held a meeting with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in Srinagar and senior BJP leaders also conducted a meeting in Jammu to discuss the resignations. We were hoping that he will speak something on the issue and will give assurance to the countrymen to ensure safety of our daughters. The rape victim's father had later died in police custody after being allegedly thrashed by Sengar's brother and his supporters.

Trump, "certainly believes he has the power" to fire Mueller, the White House press secretary said Tuesday. If the latter is true, Wisenberg noted, "Then it is no longer part of Mueller's case".

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi clearly anxious at the kind of nationwide outrage unleashed by the Kathua horror has promised to punish the guilty. The widespread protests against the two ministers gained intensity earlier this week, more than a month after they attended the rally and made utterly despicable remarks.

Investigations revealed she was held captive inside a temple, and was sedated before being repeatedly raped and murdered. "I want to assure the nation that no offender will be spared". "It was felt that the crime branch was trying to specifically target Hindu families of not just the village where the crime took place but also several nearby villages", said Vijay Sharma, a Jammu-based advocate and BJP leader who spearheads the manch.

He had arrived in Jammu to chair a BJP legislature meet at the party headquarters.
