Srinagar, Apr 14: Expressing strong apprehensions of hindrances that might be caused in during the trials in Asifa rape and murder case,members of ‘Jammu and Kashmir youth Bakarwal Association’ today staged a protest demonstration in Srinagar and demanded shifting of the trial outside of Jammu.
The protesters said that they apprehend that hindrances will be created in the way of the trial by those elements who do not want justice to be delivered. “Everybody knows how Kathua-based lawyers tried to block Crime Branch from filing charge sheet in the case. Even counsel representing the victim was threatened,” the protestors said adding that the two BJP ministers – Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash Ganga should not only be “sacked” from the cabinet but from running for any political post for their whole lives. “This would only serve as a deterrent and set a precedence that law is for the masses and for ensuring justice” they said.
