Appalled by protests in defence of rapist: Mehbooba”

Earlier on Wednesday people had taken out a protest rally threatening agitation in case Special Police Officer accused of rape and murder of a minor girl Ashifa in Kuthua was not released from custody.

"Appalled by the marches and protests in defense of the recently apprehended rapist in Kathua".

A Hindu Ekta Manch took out protest and raised slogans carrying national flag in Jammu on Friday. "Also horrified by their (protesters') use of our national flag in these demonstrations, this is nothing short of desecration", Mehbooba tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha has assured Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to look into the complaints of increase in flight fare between Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir.

Aasifa, a nomadic Bakerwal (herdsmen) girl, went missing while grazing horses in Rasana village of Hiranagar tehsil of Kathua on January 17. Shortly afterwards, cops arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the crime.

The minor accused, whose identity has not been disclosed due to the provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act, has, according to the police claimed to have strangulated the girl when she resisted his rape attempt.

Distancing itself from the HEM the BJP state spokesman Arun Gupta told The New Indian Express, "We want that whoever has taken the law into his hand and committed a crime should be punished".

Unfazed by criticism, HEM president Vijay Sharma said prima facie it appears Deepak Khajuria has been made a scapegoat and therefore the case should be handed over to CBI.

Additional Director General (ADG) Crime Branch, Alok Puri, when contacted responded in affirmative when asked by GNS about the arrest of one more person.

He was arrested after SIT got clinching evidence about his alleged involvement in the case.
