SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday urged Governor Satya Pal Malik to ensure that the culprits in the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Ramban district are punished.
“What can be more blood curdling & disturbing than a case where a 13-year-old minor girl was gangraped in Ramsoo and is now 3 months into her pregnancy. But instead of public outrage, questions will swirl about the caste and religion of this innocent child and her rapists,” Mehbooba said in a tweet.
In an apparent reference to Kathua rape and murder case, the PDP president said the present atmosphere in the country had emboldened culprits to carry out such acts which are then justified on the basis of religion. (AGENCIES)
