Former CMs welcome court verdict in Kathua rape & murder case

Srinagar: Former chief ministers including Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti Monday welcomed the verdict of the Pathankot court in Kathua gangrape-murder case.

The Pathankot court today convicted six out of the seven accused, including the mastermind Sanjhi Ram in gangrape and murder of a nomadic minor girl.

NC vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah in a tweet called for a severe punishment for the convicted.

“Amen to that. The guilty deserve the most severe punishment possible under law. And to those politicians who defended the accused, vilified the victim & threatened the legal system no words of condemnation are enough. #KathuaRapeCase,” Omar tweeted.

PDP chief and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti hoped that loopholes in judicial system would not be exploited.

“Welcome the judgement. High time we stop playing politics over a heinous crime where an 8 year old child was drugged, raped repeatedly & then bludgeoned to death. Hope loopholes in our judicial system are not exploited & culprits get exemplary punishment,” Mehbooba tweeted.
