Kathua rape-murder case: We have failed the eight-year-old girl as humans, says VK Singh


New Delhi , Minister of State for External Affairs General V K Singh on Thursday said the country has failed the eight-year-old girl, who was allegedly gangraped and killed in J&K’s Kathua district. He, however, added that the girl will not be denied justice. Singh is the first person from the government to respond to the incident that sparked outrage and led to large-scale protests in the state.
The victim, a Bakherwal Muslim girl, went missing from her house in Rasana in Kathua on January 10. She was held captive under the influence of sedatives for days at a “devsthan” (prayer hall). Her body was later dumped in the forests nearby. It was found seven days after she went missing.
