BJP for CBI or judicial probe into Kathua rape-and-murder case

Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir’s ruling coalition partner BJP today expressed shock and anguish over alleged harassment of people during the investigation into the rape-and-murder of a minor girl in Kathua, and demanded a CBI or judicial probe into it.

In a statement, state BJP spokesperson Virender Gupta claimed that the way investigating agencies were conducting the probe has led to a mass exodus in the area and deterioration in law and order situation.

The body of the eight-year-old girl was recovered from Rassana forest on January 17, a week after she had gone missing while grazing horses. PTI
