Shah Faesal demands death sentence for rape accused

Srinagar, May 12: Asserting that nothing should stop police from sending the rape accused of a 3-year-old girl at Sumbal in north Kashmir district of Bandipora to gallows, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) president Shah Faesal said that the culprit should be hanged to death.
Talking about the age of the accused, Faesal, who is a former IAS officer, said, “The birth certificate of the culprit, I am told, is fake.”
Faesal said that the accused should be treated as adult. “Nothing should stop @bandiporapolice from sending the Trigam rapist to gallows. The birth certificate of the culprit, I am told, is fake. It has no value. Treat him as an adult and hang him. Entire Kashmir is with you @rmalikjk,” Mr Faesal wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
Meanwhile, massive protests were on Sunday held in Bandipora in north Kashmir and the summer capital, Srinagar, demanding exemplary punishment for the youth accused of raping the minor girl.
Police has arrested the accused and initiated investigation after the family members of the minor girl filed a complaint in Police Station Sumbal in Bandipora on May 9.
