Appeals for calm, unity


Srinagar, May 14 (KNS): Chairman Peoples Democratic Front (PDF), Hakeem Yaseen, who is currently in Makka Sharief on Umrah, has strongly condemned the shameful and ghostly incident of rape on a three years minor girl in Tregam Sumbal in district Bandipora.

In a statement issued to KNS, Hakeem Yaseen has demanded exemplary punishment to the culprit and has urged for a fast track court trial to provide justice to the victim and her family.

“This dastardly and shameful incident is a black slur on the face of humanity,” Hakeem Yaseen has remarked while demanding stringent punishment to the perpetrator of this heinous crime. The barbaric incident has pained and hurt conscience of every human being.

Meanwhile, Hakeem Yaseen has appealed to the people of the state to keep calm and defeat every nefarious attempt to give the incident a sectarian twist.
