Victim should get justice without delay: Mehboob Beg

Senior PDP leader and former parliamentarian, Dr Mehboob Beg has condemned the alleged rape of a three-year old girl in Bandipora.

“Acts such as these, shake the very foundation of Kashmiriyat and the perpetrators of such a heinous crime have no place in any society, much less the society of Kashmir,” Beg said in a statement.

The perpetrators of such a crime, he said, should not go unpunished and “the state machinery should leave no stone unturned to ensure that justice is not only done without delay.”

“We cannot afford to have such criminals roaming around freely,” he said, adding that this “virus must be destroyed root and stem”.
