40 Bakerwal families, a small nomadic community, were engrossed in fear and grief after an 8-year-old girl child was mercilessly raped and later murdered. The girl was missing from the past 7 days after she took the horses to a ditch only a kilometer away from her home.
The little kid was dumped on a roadside after the commencement of the heinous crime.
Even the State Assembly in Jammu was in shock to learn the incident. The opposition members of the National Conference and Congress created an uproar regarding the case. They demanded a prompt and fruitful inquiry as well as justice to the minor family of the poor kid.
Mehbooba Mufti, the Chief Minister of the state expressed her remorse and grief against the incident through Twitter and committed to fast-track the investigation process to fetch the girl a proper justice.
As per the father of the poor child, Mohammad Yosuf, the lifeless body of the girl had brutal marks all over the face and some parts of the body. Her lip was bitten and the entire thighs and face were covered with bloody marks.
The mother Naseema was uncontrollable after her daughter disappeared on January 10. Naseema sent her father Yosuf to see for the kid when she didn’t return even after an hour. The family and the neighbors continued with the searching for the past 7 days and also approached the police, who took the complaint very lightly.
On January 17, a woman informed the family members about a lifeless body of a girl, which was lying a few meters away from the home. Police spotted the girl and took her for the post-mortem. Post the activities of the authorities were accomplished, the girl was buried.
The government has even appointed a special team of investigators to take care of the procedure skillfully.
