HIRANAGAR, APR 05:
Agitated over the callous and lackadaisical attitude of the unholy combine of the BJP-PDP towards the people of Hiranagar and village Rasana in particular who had been harassed by the Crime Branch of J&K Police under the pretext of Asifa Bano rape and murder case, a herd of ‘Mahila Panthers’ along with several women protestors of village Rasana spearheaded by Mrs. Manju Singh General Secretary JKNPP gheraoed the Minister Abdul Haq Khan, MoS Priya Sethi and local MLA Kuldeep Raj at R.K Resort at Jatwal today. The angry women activists while showing ‘black flags’ to the Ministers, demanded transfer of the child homicide case to CBI for impartial investigation so that the actual offenders of the brutal crime were apprehended, punished and the innocent people were liberated from Police atrocities and harassment. Raising slogans against BJP Ministers, they closed the main gate of the R.K Resort and squatted on the lawns of the Resort.
Perturbed by the deteriorating health condition of the Rasana protestors at Kootah Morh in Hiranagar, Mrs. Manju Singh enquired about the well being of Anjana Devi, Trishla Devi, Darshana Devi and Sushma Devi who had collapsed yesterday and were forcefully admitted in the hospital for medical intervention. Addressing the gathering, she said that BJP had bartered away the aspirations of the people of Hiranagar for remaining glued to power which was ‘ephemeral’.
They shall be routed and decimated ‘permanently’ by the people in the days to come, dismayed Manju said. She added that panthers Party shall not relent until the demand of CBI probe into the murder case was conceded by the government.
Adv. Kesar Praveen State Secretary JKNPP said that Mahila Panthers were well versed with the agony and trauma the women including mothers, sisters and daughters of Hiranagar were going through. She vowed to stand by the protestors in taking the holy struggle of the people to its logical conclusion.
