Lal Singh demands CBI probe to clear ‘doubts’ in Kathua probe
Jammu: Jammu: BJP leader Lal Singh, who resigned from the state cabinet after raising questions about the police action in Kathua rape and murder case, Monday reiterated his demand for a CBI probe in the matter.
Singh has launched a campaign in Jammu region to bat for a CBI probe and has taken out rallies in Jammu, Kathua, Samba areas drawing huge crowds in support of his demand.
Please do not focus on any other thing than a CBI probe. I continue to demand a CBI probe as there is need to clear the doubt arising due to media reports and the probe in which the people here have been defamed , Singh told reporters here.
Media and others have done a lot of damage to “the reputation of the Dogras of Jammu” as something or the other keeps appearing everyday, he said.
After the accused themselves raised the demand for a narcotic test before the judge, the case has got a new twist. So we don’t want there should be any discrimination against anyone while the actual culprits get scot free,” the former minister said.
Taking a pot-shot at the Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP government, he said what was the problem in ordering a CBI probe unless they have to something hide. Do you think the CBI will do something else?” he asked.
