Kathua rape-murder case: Bandh against police action hits normal life in Jammu

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Jammu: Markets were deserted, schools closed while fewer vehicles moved on roads as a 'bandh' called by the Jammu High Court Bar Association (JHCBA) demanding a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-cum-murder case disrupted normal life across the region today.

 The region has been tense since the brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl belonging to the nomadic Muslim Bakerwal community. The police has arrested eight persons in the case but the Bar Association has opposed the action alleging "targeting of minority Dogras".

Some lawyers allegedly tried to prevent a police team from filing a charge sheet in the case following which another case was registered yesterday. The case has divided the state's polity.
