J K News Today

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wants Indian authorities to ensure that the perpetrators of the “horrific” gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua be brought to justice.

His Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric told reporters on Friday that he has seen reports about the “horrific case” of the abuse and murder of the nomadic Bakerwal community girl.

“We very much hope that the authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice so they can be held accountable for the murder of this young girl,” he said.

 

The minor was kidnapped on January 10, and taken to a temple in Kathua, drugged and gang raped over days and finally killed to scare the nomadic Muslim community out of the village. Her body was found dumped in a forest near Rasana village seven days later.
