Need to amendment in law against such heinous crimes: Shaheen
SRINAGAR, May 13: Expressing grief and sorrow on the unfortunate and immoral incident at Sumbal Bandipora, Janta Dal United JD(U) State President G M Shaheen on Monday termed such incidents as a black stain on our social fabric and rich culture.
“While condemning such incidents of a heinous crime, Shaheen flayed the unfortunate role played by the law enforcement institutions in Jammu and Kashmir. Bribery and a poor sense of responsibility both in judiciary and police administration left the galloping crime rate un-tethered, because of the disputed nature of our state. Political interference in these law enforcement institutions has infected and ruined the whole system. Kuthua incident which has become a forgotten part of history now is proof in this respect.
Demanding death penalty to the accused, Shaheen said, “We request the authorities to hang the rapist to stop such cases from happening in the future”.
“The incident that has sent shivers down the spines of everyone involved the rape of a 3-year-old Bandipora girl by the accused identified as Tahir Ahmad Mir who is in his 20’s,” he added and urged upon the Governor Satya Pal Malik to personally intervene in the serious matter so that now is going to go for such heinous crimes in future.
