Kuthua rape-murder: Culprits qualify for maximum punishment, says Geelani

Srinagar: Reacting to the verdict on the rape and murder case of Kuthua minor girl, the Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday said that the culprits qualify for the maximum punishment.
“This inhuman act has shattered every soul. It was a well-knit conspiracy to harass and throw this poor and helpless community out of their own locality,” he said in a statement.
“All these murderers, their mastermind, their collaborators and their helpers, all should have met the same fate as that innocent minor girl, but here the laws are selective and punishments are decided on the mood and whim of population,” Geelani said.
The Hurriyat chairman said that on one hand, “people are hanged on political grounds to satisfy the collective conscious and on other hand those responsible for innocent and gruesome killings in broad-day-light are given lighter punishment”.
“Giving benefit of doubt to the son of the mastermind is shameful as he too should have made to undergo similar pain and agony that innocent minor girl was subjected to,” he added.
