Capital punishment needed: KEA

Srinagar: Seeking a fast track probe into the rape of a three-year-old, the Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan on Monday said the government should redouble the efforts in taking the case to the logical conclusion at the earliest.
Khan, who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF), said such shameful incidents would keep taking place unless capital punishment in made mandatory for such criminals.
Stating that miscreants were reportedly trying to give the incident a sectarian colour, he appealed the people to be united for the cause of humanity.
“Such incident is not against any community or sect but against entire humanity and we all need to be united in his hour of grief for the cause of humanity,” Khan said in a statement.
Khan appealed Governor SP Malik and Divisional Commissioner Kashmir to ensure that the identity of the victim is not exposed anywhere including social media.
The name of the victim was exposed by some miscreants and the concerned should take measures to get her name changed for future, he said.
