HEM seeks ‘donation to engage counsels’ for accused
JAMMU, May 16: The Hindu Ekta Manch has sought donations from public to engage counsels on behalf of the accused in seeking CBI inquiry into the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir in January.

When contacted, Manch president Vijay Sharma said a decision to make public appeal for donations was taken at a meeting of the organisation. “However, it has not evoked much response so far,” he said, adding that they would have to personally contact their friends and well wishers to raise funds.

“We have to mobilise enough resources so that the best legal team is mobilised to successfully plead the case before the Supreme Court. We appeal to everybody to come forward and donate generously so that a corpus of fund is created to meet the legal expenses,’’ according to a message posted by the outfit on social media.

Pointing out that the Manch has to “move Supreme Court for a CBI enquiry to find the real culprits in the murder and alleged rape of an eight-year-old girl’’, the message said, “for ensuring this, we have constituted a team of lawyers to file the due petition’’ at the earliest. “All of us have realised that CBI enquiry has become a critical requirement in case real culprits have to be nailed and innocents falsely implicated in the case are freed. The CBI enquiry is also critically needed to unearth the bigger conspiracy behind the murder,” it read.

The organisation said the “whole issue” has been used to “harass the people of Rasana and adjoining villages so that they abandon their homes and hearths and shift to some other place”.

“In case this happens there will be an immense boost to the Muslim demographic invasion of this area in particular and Jammu region in general,” the message added.

“Changing the demographic complexion of Jammu is part of the jihad being waged on Hindus. In the light of these dangers forcing a CBI inquiry into the Rassana case assumes immense importance,” message said.

Manch message asked people to donate generously to that the “best legal team is mobilised to successfully plead the case before the Supreme Court of India”.

The donation campaign will be led by former sarpanches Kant Kumar, Yogesh Singh, Vijay Tagotra, Suresh Katal, Bhagmal and Raj Khajuria of Hiranagar tehsil.
