UN SECRETARY-GENERAL Antonio Guterres wants Indian authorities to ensure that the perpetrators of the "horrific" gangrape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua be brought to justice. "Rage over the agenda of division and hate your party and its innumerable offshoots have insidiously introduced into the grammar of our politics, our social and cultural life and even our daily discourse", they said in the letter.
A lawyer fighting for justice to Kathua rape and murder victim on Saturday alleged he had been attacked by goons in Udhampur town.
"We feel that those two had the biggest role in the rape and murder of Asifa". Her body was found in the same area a week later.
While a minor was raped in Unnao and her subsequent pleas for an FIR allegedly ignored by state police because a BJP MLA was reportedly involved, an eight-year-old girl in Kathua was first kidnapped, then sedated, raped and murdered. Echoing these views, veteran actor and BJP MP Hema Malini taking to Twitter, said, "Daily newspaper reports of rape happening in every part of our country!"
