Assuring students that government would ensure quickest trial of Kathua rape accused and harshest punishment to convicts, Minister for Education and Finance Syed Altaf Bukhari Saturday said “our children show wisdom and they should ensure that shortage of class attendance does not become an issue for them to sit in the examinations”.
Altaf Bukhari asked students to control their emotions and return to classes to ensure that shortage of attendance does not become an issue for them to sit in the examination after few months.
Reposing trust and confidence in the students, Bukhari said “our children show wisdom in trying times and hope they would return to classes peacefully. I assure them that government would ensure quickest trial of the Kathua rape accused and harshest punishment to the convicts of that unpardonable crime. Today Union Cabinet is meeting and of central government passes an ordinance to allow courts for awarding death penalty to rape convicts the state government would also invoke a suitable legislation similar to the one which the central government would pass in the parliament.
