The Women’s Commission chairperson, Nayeema Mehjoor on Thursday pitched for the strict against the involved in Asifa Bano Murder case and said that politics must be sidelined while punishing those who committed the heinous crime.
Nayeema told KNS that on the very first day after the crime, the team of women’s commission went to Rasana the native of slain Asifa Bano and took first hand information of the crime. “We talked to girl’s family, locals of the village and also sought the initial medical report of the victim,” Nayeema said.
She added that the initial medical report of Asifa gave clear indication that something terrible has happened with the poor girl at the time when she was abducted. “The police have sent the samples to the FSL for further examination. We are keeping a very close vigil over the process of investigation and will not allow the involved to move scot-free,” Nayeema Mehjoor told KNS.
She added that politics in this case must be set aside and guilty need to be punished for the heinous crime they have committed. “Politics later, at first, it is a heinous crime that needs to be dealt with strongly by the government. Such things were alien to Jammu and Kashmir but such acts stir our conscience,” she said.
The women’s commission chairperson added that she has appraised the government about her initial findings in the case and has asked it to act tough against the guilty. “We are maintaining a very close watch over the investigation process and will keep an eye over all developments taking place during the probe.”
