KEA, KTMF protest against Jammu lawyers for supporting ‘perpetrators’
SRINAGAR: Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) and Kashmir Traders Manufactures Federation (KTMF) on Wednesday held protests here against Jammu based lawyers for supporting the alleged perpetrators of “gruesome’ rape and murder”.
Kashmir traders body threatened to stir an agitation in case government fails to provide justice to the family of KathuaBakarwal girl.
The protesting traders denounced Jammu Bar association’s bandh call in support of the accused in gangrape and murder of eight-year-old girl.
While talking to reporters, trade leader Farooq Ahmed Dar said that it is utterly shameful that some criminals with BJP backing are trying to give a communal color to the gruesome rape and murder incident.
He said they will launch an agitation in case government succumbed to the pressure of fringe elements. “Pressure is being created to subvert the case, so that culprits are given an easy escape,” Dar said.
The protesting traders chanted anti-government slogans and assured Jammu Muslims that they will always back them.
