Nationwide protests demand justice for Kathua, Unnao rape victims

"It is for any individual advocate to accept the brief and the bar association will not come in the way of defence nor the bar association will hamper the prosecution", President of BAK Kirty Bhushan Mahajan had said in a seven page statement.

Mehbooba Mufti, chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday terminated the services of the four cops accused of rape and murder of the minor Kathua girl.

Jammu: The Jammu Bar Association on Saturday sought compensation and security for the Kathua rape and murder victim's family.

"We, the Indian student and alumni community in the United Kingdom, are deeply horrified and demand immediate proceedings against the accused in both cases (Kathua and Unnao). It is shameful that someone says an old man called his young son from his college in UP to rape a little girl", she said.

Amid the growing anger and protests over the gang rape and brutal murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, the Women and Child Development Ministry said it would move a notice to amend the POCSO Act and bring in the death penalty for child rape.

A week later, her body was recovered from Rassana forest in Kathua district of Jammu on January 17. Speaking at a function to inaugurate a memorial to Dalit icon B R Ambedkar, Modi said, "The type of incidents that have been talked about in the last two days have shamed us as a nation and as a society".

The resignations of two BJP ministers, who square the controversy by attending a rally supporting the alleged people of the raping and killing the victim in Kathua, is all set to handed over to CM Mufti for additional and further action, stated by the senior BJP leader Ram Madhav. Both the alliance partners - the BJP and the PDP - had separate legislature party meetings in Srinagar and Jammu yesterday to discuss the situation arising out of the polarisation in the state over the rape-cum-murder of the girl.

He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits. The BCI chairman also said that the team will visit the state on April 20 to investigate the matter and after consulting all the persons concerned, it will submit its report to the bar council which will in turn submit its report before the apex court. There was no pressure on me to resign; I have done it by myself.

Basotra said they were concerned over the security threat posed by Rohingya as they had got Aadhaar cards.

Police said they have taken cognizance of Hussain's complaint and started investigations.
