Lawyers blocking attempt of the Crime Branch to file a charge sheet against the accused in rape and murder case of a minor Kathua girl is an outrageous act. The lawyers comprising members of Kathua Bar Association and Young Lawyers Association blocked the entrance to the chamber of CJM to prevent the Crime Branch from submitting the challan.
It seems the people who are defending the accused seem to have forgotten that the innocent victim was mauled by the people with animal instincts and there is no place for animals in the civilized society. If the lawyers believe that the accused are innocent then they should allow the law to take its own course rather than stopping the Crime Branch from doing its job.
Since the day Crime Branch has taken up the investigations into the case no stone is being left unturned to stall the investigations and shield the accused. It’s unfortunate that some people are trying to pit the two communities against each other for saving the skin of the accused.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is also supporting the people who are demanding that case should be transferred to Central Bureau of Investigation. The BJP Ministers and leaders also met the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in this connection but the Chief Minister rejected their demand and allowed the Crime Branch to carry on with the probe.
Despite facing a difficult situation Crime Branch has filed the charge sheet and has succeeded in nailing the accused. Now it’s for court to decide whether the arrested persons are involved in this heinous crime or not. People who are challenging the law of the land and are trying to shield the criminals are trying to prove a dangerous point that they approve this heinous act and have no sympathy towards the victim.
