Tarigami demands exemplary punishment for Sumbal rape culprit
Srinagar, May 14: CPI(M) leader and former MLA M Y Tarigami today demanded exemplary punishment to the one involved in the rape of a 3-year-old girl in Sumbal area of Bandipora.
“A devil is a devil and he has no religion or sect. Last year, in Kathua when an 8-year-old nomad girl was gangraped and brutally murdered, a criminal act was communalised. Whole of the country condemned that devilish act,” Tarigami said in a statement issued today.
He said that some vested interests are trying to divide our ranks and trying to take advantage of Sumbal rape incident. “We must guard against such people. We appeal to people to protest peacefully and not resort to any type of violence”.
