Eight-year-old Asifa Bano of Rasana village, in Kathua district of Jammu & Kashmir had gone missing on January 10, 2018 and her dead body was recovered on January 17, 2018 with torture marks, about one-and-a-half kilometers away from her residence.

The girl was sexually assaulted before being brutally killed by the abductors.

As per the media reports, the victim’s family and the community accused the police of not making sincere efforts to trace the girl even after registration of a missing complaint on January 11.

“The parents and relatives of the victim went to police station to lodge a missing complaint but officials denied to do so and asked the worried family to trace her on their own. The police lodged the complaint on January 11 but told the family to keep patience as it is government work that takes time. Instead of searching her in the village, the police visited forest areas and that too only once. The jungle is best known to be second home for tribals and no one knows jungle better than them,” said Waqar Bhatti, an activist who along with others and family members is fighting for justice to Newsclick.

“The body of the girl was badly mutilated with bites of human teeth. The goons tried to crush her body with stones due to which her collar bone, ribs, arms and hip were broken,” He added.

The eight year old girl gets abducted when she was taking her horses to ditch and our super efficient cops remain inefficient to trace her. She remain abducted for over seven days and was physically abused. The police failed to get upto her. After being physically abused she was brutally killed by giving her electric shocks; breaking her bones i.e. clavicle, upper limb, lower limb, pelvic girdle etc. All her family demanded is justice for Asifa and instead got one tweet from first women Cheif Minister of our State. What wrong did that eight year old child did? Was her only crime was that she was a girl?
