Can a father ask his son to rape someone, asks: Sanjhi Ram's daughter
Rassana Rape and murder case

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 15: In the midst of a national outrage against the infamous Rassana rape and murder case, triggered by a media trial and a shameful tug of war to derive political mileage out of the awful incident, several pertinent questions have come to the fore, which need to be answered by the investigation agency.
Sources divulge that some serious flaws have been pointed out by the locals in the charge sheet produced by the crime branch, which investigated the case. Even as Bar Associations of Jammu and Kathua have been target of severe censure by the national media and political commentators, those privy to developments in the case during the four months since the gory incident took place, reveal that there is more to it than what meets the eye. Those demanding a CBI inquiry into the case advocate that their demand was being misconstrued as an attempt to shield the accused, but they merely intended to bring out the truth in entirety.
The questions are being raised over the prosecution story with regards to confinement of the victim at a religious place for days and also on the manner in which the body of the deceased was disposed by the accused. According to the charge sheet, the accused confined the victim at a religious place in the village for three days and hid her beneath a table, covering it up with carpets, but people completely demolish the charge saying that the place in question was frequented by the local devotees from two adjoining villages and it was impossible to confine someone there and escape an eye for days. "It is impossible to hold someone captive in that place for days as many people came to pay their obeisance there both during morning as well as evenings" lament locals. Similarly, the investigative agency has also claimed that the victim was also held captive at a shed owned by the main accused Sanji Ram, while locals claim that the said shed was open from all sides and surrounded by residential houses and hence it was not possible to confine someone there. Serious question mark has also been raised over the spot where the body of the victim was found abandoned. While according to the charge sheet, the accused could not arrange a vehicle to dispose off the body into the canal some distance away, but the locals question how the body was found from a place in between the said religious place and Sanji Ram's residential house. "Why would he throw the body so close to his own house?" they questioned.
The daughter of the main accused has questioned the charge that her father had encouraged her brother and his son to rape the victim. "Can any father ever ask his son to rape someone?" She questioned alleging that charge sheet of the Crime branch was concocted and her father was wrongly implicated in the case as 'mastermind'. She also demanded that the attendance record of her brother, who was allegedly taking his exam at a college in Meerut be authenticated by the FSL. She claimed that while his brother has been alleged to have raped the victim on January 13, he had left for Meerut on January 6 to appear in his exams which were scheduled for 9th,11th,15th, 17th,19th,22nd,24th and 29th of January.
Meanwhile, the case has assumed enormous infamy and political ramifications. Two ministers had to resign allegedly for leading rallies organized in favour of the accused and the leadership of the Bar Associations of Jammu and Kathua had to face embarrassment for seeking CBI inquiry into the case. The Bar Council of India has now constituted a committee to assess the situation with regards to accusations raised against the Bar.
