Srinagar, June 10: CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Monday welcomed the verdict by the Pathankot court which convicted six out of seven accused in connection with the Kathua gang-rape and murder case of an 8-year-old nomadic girl.
The gruesome gangrape and murder is crime committed by the enemies of humanity. Crime is a crime irrespective of criminal’s caste, colour and creed. Unfortunately, some fringe elements had tried to communalise this incident but due to intervention of judiciary, people of the state and the country they could not succeed.
Civil society and saner voices irrespective of affiliation and ideology, across the country, raised voice against this brutal act and today’s verdict is the victory of truth. Civil society has to act irrespective of ideological, political affiliation. Crime is crime, it should be condemned by one and all.
