Srinagar, : At a time when the people across the globe raised their voice over the Kathua rape and murder case, the downtown youth has taken a lead by announcing ‘a gift’ of Rs fifty thousand to Advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat for taking the step forward by pleading the case to deliver justice to the minor victim.
A downtown youth namely Sajad Shah from Tankipora told Kashmir News Service (KNS) that the people have raised their voice over the gruesome act to demand stern punishment against the culprits but at the same time people shouldn’t forget that the lady (Advocate Deepka Singh Rajawat) who belongs to Kashmiri Pandit family has exhibited Kashmiriyat by pleading the case to deliver Justice to Asifa.
“Though I am not affiliated with any political party but I know how much she has to spend to take the minor girl’s case to the logical conclusion. Keeping in view of the money she has to spend, I took the step from my side to help her and announced a gift of my hard earned Rs fifty thousand to her so that she can plead the case easily and help in delivering justice to Asifa,” he added.
He told KNS that he would like to help the Advocate in future as well in case she need more money to plead the case to deliver justice to the victim.
Saying that the way Advocate Rajawat took this step is appreciable, the downtown youth said that “by taking this step, she has got the support of every individual across the globe as she exhibited Kashmiriyat and humanity of Kashmir. I didn’t know her before but from now onwards, she is my sister.”
The downtown youth further prayed for the courage of the victim family and said that those who are behind the act should be dealt with strictly. “The Kathua episode was painful and has shaken the consciousness of every individual. Those who are seeking relief to the culprits should also be dealt with strictly,” he added.
Asked about the plea seeking transfer of the case from Kathua court, Shah said that the case should not be transferred to outside Jammu and Kashmir as there are quite apprehensions that the authorities would hush up it by shifting the case to outside the state.
