Convicts in Kathua rape-murder case can approach higher court: BJP

Srinagar, Jun 11 : Ridiculing the media reports that the party was disgruntled over the recent court verdict in Rasana case, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said it welcomes the court judgement and wants stern punishment to the culprits.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Ashok Koul who is BJP’s state General Secretary trashed the media reports about BJP upping an ante against the Rasana court verdict and told that they party wants culprits to be punished and demands justice to the victim child.

However, Koul was quick to add that the accused convicted by the court recently have every right to approach the higher court and seek justice if they deem they have been denied the same in any way. “We have heard convicts saying that they have not been given justice. In such a case, they are free to approach the higher court- this is their constitutional right,” said Koul.

On January 10 last year, Eight-year-old girl belonging to Bakarwal tribe went missing in Rasana village of Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district while grazing cattle. A week later, her body was found in nearby woods. Post mortem confirmed gang rape and murder.

Court on Monday convicted six of the seven defendants were found guilty, and one was acquitted. Three were sentenced to life imprisonment and three to five years. (KNS)
