“The law will not be obstructed by the irresponsible actions & statements of a group of people. Proper procedures are being followed, investigations are on the fast track & justice will be delivered. #JusticeForAsifa,” Ms Mehbooba wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
The tweet by the Chief Minister comes a day after a strike called by the Jammu Bar association, seeking the case to be transferred from Crime Branch of state police to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), evoked a lukewarm response in the winter, capital.
A group of lawyers tried to prevent CB from producing the challan in the court on Monday. However, later with the help of police the challan was filed in the court. Seven people were arrested by the CB in the rape and murder case. A number of BJP leaders and Kathua Bar Association are demanded that the case be handed over to CBI. Two ministers of the BJP also joined protest against the arrest of accused, evoking massive condemnation from various organisations.(UNI)
