CB not following SC order while questioning witnesses: BJP
Kathua rape and murder case
Jammu, May 24: The BJP today accused the Jammu and Kashmir Police of not complying with the Supreme Court order, which allowed the family of three witnesses in the Kathua rape-murder case to accompany them for questioning.
“The Crime Branch of J&K Police must follow the order of the Supreme Court in letter and spirit, and ensure that the interrogation is done within the visible distance of the family members so that any possibility of coercion and harassment as alleged by the three students, is ruled out,” BJP state spokesperson Anil Gupta said in a press release.
“After the Crime Branch resumed the interrogation in the case, it failed to comply with the Supreme Court order and did not allow the relatives to accompany the three boys,” he said.
