Srinagar: A day after Hindu Ekta Manch took out a rally threatening agitation in case Special Police Officer accused of rape and murder of a minor girl in Kuthua is not released, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said that law will take its own course.
She said that she was appalled by the marches and protests in the defence of the rapist.
“Appalled by the marches & protests in defence of the recently apprehended rapist in Kathua. Also horrified by their use of our national flag in these demonstrations, this is nothing short of desecration. The accused has been arrested & the law will follow its course,” Mufti tweeted.
Earlier on Wednesday, Hindu Ekta Manch led by BJP leader took out a rally from Ghagwal to Hiranagar (Kathua) in protest against the arrest of Deepak in rape and brutal murder case.
The protesters said: “Deepak should be released and those whom the Crime Branch (CB) has called for questioning should not be harassed.”
“It will disturb the situation. We are against the murder of the minor nomad girl but we don’t want our men to be framed,” threatened leader of Hindu Ekta Manch.
Not respecting the rule of law, they threatened that “if such things continue to happen (suspecting of member of one community in murder of Asifa), the people will come on the roads”.
Pertinently, the Crime Branch has arrested a SPO of Jammu and Kashmir who allegedly kidnapped, raped and brutally murdered the minor girl before dumping her in the forests.
As per the reports CB has said he wanted to spread terror in the hearts of the minority community due to which he took this extreme step.
