Geelani condemns communalization of Kathua rape and murder case
Srinagar, March 08: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday alleged ruling coalition in state for providing safe passage to those accused in Kathua rape and murder case. Blaming authorities for deliberate attempt to hush up the case by destroying evidences and building up a communal narrative around the heinous crime, Syed Ali Geelani expressed his deep concern.
Lashing at ruling elite, Geelani in a statement issued here said that instead of preserving the evidences the police destroyed all evidences to save skin of those involved in barbarous crime.
Syed Ali Geelani condemned the “politicization and communalization” of an eight-year-old girl’s rape and murder and alleged that vested and communal sections were politicizing and communalizing situations, thus sabotaging investigations”.
It is a well thought out ploy to save criminals and in-depth investigation will lead to more arrests and will certainly reveal the involvement of more assailants, asserted Geelani.
Commenting over the slow pace in investigations, intentions to handover case to CBI and pressure created by vested interests, Syed Ali Geelani said that it is a deliberate move to shelve the case as was observed in Asiya and Nilofer Shopian double murder and rape case.
