Asifa was kidnapped and held captive from a village in Jammu’s Kathua district on January 10. For the following seven days, she was sedated, starved and gang-raped. Then she was murdered – her head was bashed with a stone to make sure that she was lifeless.
Native policemen tried to protect the suspects and destroyed proof. However when arrests have been made, the Mufti Mehbooba authorities ordered the case to the crime department. That’s when the horror story began unfolding. It turned out that the gang-rape was a tactic to drive out a Muslim nomad group to which the kid belonged from a Hindu-dominated space.
Because the crime department began making arrests, native political activists began attacking the police. They have been supported by native politicians together with the BJP’s two ministers within the Jammu and Kashmir authorities.
In accordance with a tweet by BJP chief Ram Madhav, the state BJP unit handed a decision on 1 April condemning the heinous crime that had taken place greater than two months earlier. It additionally underlined that “the harmless shouldn’t be harassed”.
It has been insinuated in Jammu that the policemen have been gunning for leaders from a selected faith; a marketing campaign that the police has been furiously attempting to counter and ship a robust message towards these communalising the problem.
The probe group is headed by a Kashmiri Pandit and a Kashmiri Muslim officer and the police in the present day requested the federal government to process prosecutors from the Sikh group for the trial.
Mr Vaid advised NDTV that the Crime Department and the particular group, which probed the “horrific crime”, had completed knowledgeable job and hadn’t spared even their colleagues who had compromised the investigation and tried to destroy proof.
“Two particular law enforcement officials have been arrested. So 4 of our personal males who, for no matter cause, whether or not for bribe or no matter cause did one thing improper… even they haven’t been spared. In order that speaks of the equity of the investigation of Jammu and Kashmir Police”, he mentioned.
Requested why the Jammu Bar Affiliation says it has no religion within the police and desires a CBI inquiry, Mr Vaid mentioned: “I feel solely they will reply this why they do not think about the crime department of the J&Okay Police… J&Okay Police, which is preventing virtually war-like scenario and which may sacrifice its males in Kashmir can do such an ideal job, it’s admired all around the nation for its skilled working and I’m actually shocked if anyone says they do not have belief on J&Okay Police.”
“In J&Okay Police or wherever within the nation, we work as law enforcement officials, we do not work as Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Sikhs. All my officers, I can vouch for them. They work as skilled law enforcement officials”, mentioned the police chief.
Requested if he was dissatisfied that the BJP ministers within the state have been questioning their very own police power, Mr Vaid mentioned: “I’ve nothing a lot so as to add. You’ve got already mentioned it however I do really feel unhealthy about it.”
