Family of Kathua victim demands justice
Udhampur (Jammu and Kashmir), Apr 14 (ANI): The family members of the eight-year-old rape victim have demanded that an FIR should be lodged against the two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, Chandra Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh, who had resigned earlier following accusations of attending a rally in support of the miscreants responsible for the crime.
"We feel that those two had the biggest role in the rape and murder of Asifa.
Now, that the truth is coming out, they are resigning.
I want to appeal to the central government to at least register an FIR against them," said the victim's uncle.
Meanwhile, a People's Democratic Party leader informed that their government would soon bring a law which would make the death penalty mandatory for those who rape minors.
In Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, an eight-year-old Muslim nomadic girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, gangraped, tortured and killed.
After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.
