Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday urged the governor of Jammu and Kashmir to ensure the culprits behind the rape of 12 year old girl Ramsoo girl are punished.
The PDP president took to her twitter handle to express outrage at the rape of 12 year old girl. “What can be more blood curdling & disturbing than a case where a 13 year old minor girl was gangraped in Ramsoo & is now 3 months into her pregnancy. But instead of public outrage, questions will swirl about the caste and religion of this innocent child and her rapists,” Wrote Mufti.
She further wrote: “Before we know it will assume communal understones & leaders who enjoy political patronage will be out on a limb to defend the rapists. Current atmosphere in our country has sadly emboldended such acts which are justified on basis of religion & to teach the minority a lesson.”
“Is this what we have come to as a nation? Urge the @jandkgovernor to ensure culprits are punished,” tweeted Mufti.
12-year-old nomad girl, was raped by a group of locals in Ramsoo area of Ramban district in Jammu and Kashmir.
