Kathua rape-murder: Union Minister VK Singh tweets demanding ‘justice for Ashifa’, says ‘we have failed her as humans’ – Times of India

NEW DELHI: About the horrific rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir‘s Kathua, Union minister VK Singh today tweeted demanding “justice For Ashifa“, and added, “we have failed her as humans”.

“We have failed Ashifa as humans. But she will not be denied justice,” tweeted Singh.

The rape-and-murder of the nomadic Muslim Bakerwal community girl – whose name is also spelled ‘Asifa‘ – has created a controversy after lawyers in Jammu tried to prevent the Crime Branch from filing a chargesheet in the case. The chargesheet has revealed some chilling details about how the girl was allegedly kidnapped, drugged, raped inside a place of worship before being killed.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti also today said her government will not allow the law to be obstructed and added that justice will be delivered in the case.

Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, however, lashed out at the chief minister for not taking any action against two BJP ministers who had attended a rally held in support of the persons accused in the case.

“What rubbish! They are HER ministers, not the Hon(ourable) PM’s. The way for her to express her displeasure is to sack them in Jammu not come & leak her alleged displeasure in Delhi,” Omar wrote on his twitter handle.
