No matter what, serenity and normalcy could not touch up the beautiful valleys of Kashmir. Teemed with tourists, Kashmir could, with its beauty, never instil peace in the ever-turbulent lives of Kashmir. Outrages, one after another, are more like a part and parcel of a Kashmiri’s life.
It was in the very recent past when violence struck NIT Srinagar as the Kashmiri students and outstation students fiercely clashed after India-West Indies match. And not this fire was doused that another Handwara molestation case had hit across the media. Well, this is so Kashmir after all.
Anyways, the minor girl from Handwara who reportedly had been molested by two anonymous (yet to be found) devils, this time, is the spark behind the deadly hullaballoo which so far had claimed 5 lives.
The case is quite perplexing as three different says exist for it. As reported, the truth is yet to unveil itself. The first story heralds two army men as the molesters. The second one holds the two local youth responsible for it. In the support of it, a video too has been released showing the victim batting for the army men and blaming the two local youths. Who knows if the statement comes under the army’s pressure? While, the third and the last one, being the most appropriate, says that the state’s police is on with the investigation to seize the actual convicts and not the rumoured.
The matter has culminated in real morbid and troublesome atmosphere in Handwara. In fact, curfew too was launched after the uncontrollable conflict between the protestors and police men and internet services too were cut off for a couple of days.
Hope the truth surfaces up and there’s no miscarriage of justice, albeit justice had so far never transpired in the grisly state of Jammu and Kashmir.
