SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, students of Soura Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar staged a strong protest against the rape of a three-year-old girl in Bandipora district of the occupied valley.
According to Kashmir Media Service, several MBBS students assembled in the College premises and held a peaceful protest against the brutal act, demanding death penalty to the culprit.
“We are protesting against the inhuman act. The culprit who is mature must be punished as per law,” a protestant said.
The protesting students were holding placards that read “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” They sought that the probe into the case be taken on a fast-track basis.
On Tuesday, Pakistan’s Foreign Office strongly condemned the heart-rending incident of rape.
Foreign Office spokesperson, in a Twitter message, reminded International forum of the ‘humanitarian nightmare’ and atrocities Kashmiris are going through in the occupied valley.
“Reported Horrific rape of 3-year-old Kashmiri girl in Bandipora, in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir, another brutal reminder of the humanitarian nightmare in IOK”, the spokesperson tweeted.
“Fresh reports of Pellet gun firing on protestors, yet another reflection of continued Indian atrocities”, he added.
