Kathua rape-murder: Never raised questions on JK polices probe, says Mir

Kathua rape-murder: Never raised questions on JK polices probe, says Mir

Referring to the statements of Congress Jammu & Kashmir unit chief, Javadekar questioned that if Rahul Gandhi can take out a candle march over the incident why can't he take action against his state unit chief. It will be the second visit of Mr Gandhi to his constituency after he took over as Congress president.

He also said that Congress' Ghulam Nabi Azad should apologise to the nation since the chief of Jammu Bar Association was the polling agent of Azad in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Reportedly, several Congress leaders who have been deprived of ticket have contacted BJP.

The playing of video by the BJP is aimed at diverting attention from the involvement of its J-K ministers and party leaders in the Rassana agitation to shield the culprits of the Kathua case, Mir alleged. Taking a jibe at the Congress President, Javadekar said, "Rahulji had led a candlelight march at night but why don't he take action against his own leader?" He evaded questions on why Rahul Gandhi and the Congress remained silent for about three months on the rape and murder case.

Speaking on the matter, the general secretary of SC/ST the Employees Union of the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Solanki claimed that they gathered at the venue to pay tributes even before the BJP leaders arrived. "It was prior to the arrest of the mastermind and main accused, and others (in the Kathua case)", he said.

Fillenwarth says four people suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, where they will be questioned by police. Officers will also be interviewing those involved in the fight, including the four people who received minor injuries.

State Congress president Ghulam Ahmed Mir earlier pressed for the sacking of two BJP ministers over their involvement in the entire episode of Kathua and subsequent polarisation of the Jammu region.

Meanwhile, the family of the murdered Kathua rape victim has silently migrated from Rasana village to a safer place in the Kashmir Valley and then finally to Kargil as they have received threats from different quarters.

He alleged that the missionaries are also involved in large-scale religious conversion of Hindus through financial support to them.
