As the Bandipora rape of a three year-old has shaken the valley and forcing people to take to streets to protest the heinous crime, two former chief Ministers – National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti have reacted to the gruesome incident. Omar has sought exemplary punishment for those involved .
Omar Abdullah wrote in twitter
The rape of a child in Tirgaam is a travesty. @JmuKmrPolice must ensure a speedy investigation with only one consideration and that is to identify the guilty, prepare a watertight case & ensure exemplary punishment to those responsible.

Mehbooba Mufti too expressed her outrage in her tweet
Mortified to hear about the rape of a 3 yr old girl in Sumbal. What kind of a sick pervert would do this?Society often blames women for inviting unwanted attention but what was this child’s fault?Times like these, Shariah law seems apt so that such paedophiles are stoned to death
