The decision was taken in a meeting held under the chairmanship of BS Slathia, Senior Advocate and President JKHCBA Jammu. Various measures were discussed in order to intensify the on-going agitation including interaction with various Civil Society Groups.
Slathia and other office bearers were of the opinion that the State Government has miserably failed to protect the family of the rape victim in the Rasana rape and murder case. He urged to the State Government to provide adequate monetary compensation to the family of the victim in order to provide immediate relief and succour. He further demanded that immediate protection should be provided to the life and property of the victim family.
It was further reiterated in the meeting that demanding CBI investigation in the Rasana rape and murder case does not tantamount to shielding the real accused but the real intention was to provide justice to the victim by fair and independent probe.
In fact it was pointed out by Slathia that the Rasana case is only one of the issues of the on-going agitation and the first issue was pertaining to deportation of illegally settled immigrants i.e. Rohingyas who have settled in and around Jammu city with the active connivance of the State Government who have posed a grave threat to the people of Jammu region. It was noted with grave concern that some vested interests are trying to project that the present agitation is proceeding on communal lines and confined only to Rasana rape and murder case, which is factually incorrect.
Meanwhile, JKHCBA has taken serious note of members of the Association including Law Officers of the State desperately making all out efforts to cause appearance before the High Court and the subordinate courts, in violation of the decision of the General House of the Bar Association.
All such members including the Law Officers of the State have been warned not to violate the General House resolution, otherwise the Association shall be constrained to initiate disciplinary action including their expulsion from basic membership of the Association.
