Anger has swept across the Jammu region after a body of eight-year-old girl, who was missing for the last one week, was found near the jungles at Rasana village of Hira Nagar in Kathua district.
Parents of the girl had lodged a missing report in Hira Nagar police station seven days before when she did not return home at Kota village. On Wednesday, her body was found in the jungles of Rasana village, one and half kilometer away from her home.
Massive protests rocked the area with people demanding the culprits be brought to book. Protesters also blocked the Jammu-Pathankote highway demanding justice for the girl. Later senior civil and police officers reached the spot and assured that the culprits will be arrested. On the assurances of the officers, the protesters dispersed peacefully.
“We have constituted special investigation team headed by Sub Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Chadawal to probe this matter. We have also assured the people, who had blocked the highway, that the culprits will be brought to justice. We have also promised the compensation”, said Suresh Kumar, sub divisional magistrate, Hira Nagar
