Shocking: Even Congress leaders were part of pro rape rally in Kathua

Kathua: It was not BJP only but Congress leaders too participated in a rally that was carried out in Kathua in defence of rape and murder accused SPO Deepak Khujuria.
Khujuria and his associate Surinder Singh are in Crime Branch custody of Jammu Kashmir Police while CB has maintained that Khujuria while confessing his crime said minor nomad girl Asifa was raped and murdered to terrify Muslim Bakarwal community in the region.
To defend the accused BJP supporters used Indian tricolour and marched through roads of Kathua seeking the release of Khujuria. Now it has come to fore that some Congress leaders were also part of that illegal pro-rape rally.
Some of the prominent Congress leaders from Kathua district of Jammu region who along with their supporters participated in the BJP sponsored rally were Girdhari Lal, Subhash Chander and Vijay Tagotra.
Congress is tight lipped while political observers believe that it only vote bank politics.
BJP district president Kathua, PN Dogra has said that it is all about “nationalists” versus “anti-nationalists” and it has no faith in Crime Branch of Jammu Kashmir Police.
