Never raised questions on State police's probe, says Mir

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Apr 15: Jammu and Kashmir Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir today claimed that it was after his demand, the accused in the Kathua rape case were arrested and said he never raised questions on the state police's probe in the matter.
Mir's remarks came after the BJP this morning played a video purportedly showing him calling the police probe into the rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua as motivated and defending the public protests against it.
"This is an old video. The statement was given by me in March. It was prior to the arrest of the mastermind and main accused, and others (in the Kathua case)," he said.
The saffron party has also demanded that Congress president Rahul Gandhi sack Mir.
"It was after my statement, the main accused and mastermind, Sanji Ram, and others were arrested. I never raised question mark on the probe (by the crime branch). I have never demanded a CBI probe (into the matter)," Mir said.
In the video, which was played during a press conference at the BJP's New Delhi headquarters, Mir is purportedly telling reporters that the locals believed the investigation was motivated and that the main culprits were still at large.
It was played in the presence of senior BJP leader and Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari.
The playing of video by the BJP is aimed at diverting attention from the involvement of its J-K ministers and party leaders in the Rassana agitation to shield the culprits of the Kathua case, Mir alleged.
The BJP had faced flak after its leaders in the Jammu region, including two ministers -- Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga -- in the Mehbooba Mufti government, joined the public protests against the police probe into the rape and murder case, which led to the arrest of eight persons. The ministers resigned on Friday.
