J&K cabinet approves death penalty for rapists of children below 12

It said that at its general house meeting held on April 3, the association approved the demand for handing over Kathua rape incident to the CBI to ensure that the victim gets justice and this demand was never to support the alleged rapists.

A motivated and malicious campaign was made by some national media channels about the motive of the bandh as if those who support the bandh are those who support the rapids, which is factually incorrect.

The victim's father had earlier sought to transfer the case from the Kathua court to Chandigarh.

With regard to the allegation of obstruction or extending threat to Rajawat, the association said, "It is totally false and baseless and the same is vehemently/specifically denied".

In Srinagar, the J&K High Court said a decision on the plea by two accused of a CBI inquiry would be taken on May 7. "The real issue is that how can we achieve justice", the bench said.

The charge sheet in the matter was filed in the court of chief judicial magistrate in Kathua, which is situated at a distance of about 100 km from Jammu, it said. Thereafter attempts were made to humiliate and threaten the officers to leave the court premises and prevent filing of charge sheet.

Alam told the bench that the report of BCI can not be relied upon since no Crime branch officers, who were allegedly obstructed by agitating lawyers at Kathua, were heard.

The accused said in their plea that Article 21 of the Constitution guarantees fair investigation as well as trial to the accused and it is absolutely necessary for preservation of fundamental right.

After Centre, the Mehbooba mufti-led coalition government on Tuesday approved the ordinance to allow courts to award death penalty for girl child rape in Jammu and Kashmir.

The state police's Crime Branch, which probed the case, filed the main charge sheet against seven persons and a separate charge sheet against a juvenile in a court in Kathua district last week.

According to investigations, the girl from a minority nomadic community was allegedly kidnapped at the behest of Sanji Ram, who wanted to scare away the Gujjar and Bakherwals communities which would migrate to the village, about 90 km from here, in winter.
