Kathua Rape Case: Deepak Khajuria, the rapist of eight-year-old

J&K Police Seek Sikh Prosecutors in Kathua Case to Avoid Communal Division

(G.N.S) Dt. 14 Udhampur As the Bakerwals make their way to the upper reaches of Jammu and Kashmir with their belongings, she trudges along burdened by the weight of her eight-year-old daughter's death. The chief minister also commended the people of Jammu for having discounted the divisive agenda of the "rabid fringe elements" and coming out with unwavering support for the girl.

Under fire from opponents and protests from Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, BJP on Friday secured the resignations of two of its ministers, Lal Singh and Chandar Prakash Ganga, from the coalition government for participating in protests in favour of the accused in the Kathua gang rape and murder case.

About 50 girls and women belonging to various women's organisations today staged a demonstration here, demanding the Centre to stop recurrence of Kathua and Unnao rape incidents.

The Bar Association of Jammu had on April 13 said that it was extending its strike till April 17 against the "growing illegal presence of Rohingyas and Bangladeshi nationals", while alleging that its agitation for a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-cum-murder case was wrongly being portrayed as "communal". He said after the killing, the Hindu community did not allow them to bury the body of the girl in their graveyard.

The activists affiliated to All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA), Students Federation of India (SFI) and Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) raised slogans against those involved in the rape and murder of eight-year-old girl in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, police said. According to the crime branch charge sheet, Khajuria was the man who wanted to rape the girl, from a Muslim nomadic tribe, the Bakarwals, "one last time" before she was killed.

After public outcry, the two had submitted their resignations to state unit chief Sat Sharma and in Friday's meeting of BJP legislature party, chaired by national General Secretary Ram Madhav, it was made a decision to forward these to the Chief Minister. It is now up to the court to decide whether it should be handed over to the CBI for further investigation or not, senior advocate and JHCBA member Surinder Kour told reporters. "I myself haven't visited my son", said Khajuria's mother, Darshana Devi. "Sometimes a lack of discretion does not tantamount of any guilt...that has led to certain misconceptions about them (two ministers) also, so they decided they will quit as ministers", he responded, when asked about the two ministers having termed the action of the Crime Branch as "jungle raj" and warned police from arresting anyone.

It would complete trial in 90 days and would be the first such court in state, they said.

The issue was being politicised, she said, and claimed that their voice had been muzzled in political war. Being seen to support such arguments would only rob the party of any credibility when it comes to arguing that it is opposed to people in India illegally and not communities residing in the country.
