Kathua rape: BJP supported rapists, says Mehbooba

Srinagar: Former Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti remembers Kathua rape victim on her first death anniversary.

In a series of tweets, Mehbooba Mufti castigated Bhartiya Janata Party for communalizing the gruesome rape incident of little nomad girl of Rasna Kathua.

“Today marks a year since the horrific rape & murder of an eight year old girl in Kathua. Sadly, instead of condemning such a gruesome incident, BJP lawmakers staged protests in favour of the rapists. Even a crime like rape was communalised & passions were stoked to justify it,” Mehbooba tweeted.

She added that: “As a CM I tried my best to ensure justice was done. Can only hope that the accused are punished severely so that no other girl has to endure such pain and trauma.” (CNS)
