Early Times Report

Srinagar, Apr 17: Even as the people of Kashmir claim to be "champions of human rights", the valley and its prominent faces have been silent on the shameful incident of a girl having been repeatedly raped by her father till she finally committed suicide.
In a shocking incident, a girl from Aragam village in Bandipora district committed suicide on April 13 after being allegedly raped by her father.
As per the police, the girl had consumed poison. Though she was rushed to hospital, she succumbed.
The accused has been arrested and the police have constituted a high level team headed by a DSP to probe it in a time bound manner.
The news of father having raped the daughter broke when the bereaved family spilled the beans at the time of mourning.
According to deceased girl's sister, their father had been raping the daughter for years but that the poor girl was unable to open her mouth for the fear of getting killed.
Deceased's uncle shared similar shocking details with the reporters saying he was personally aware that his niece was being repeatedly raped by his brother.
But though the news spread like wild fire, the prominent voices in Kashmir are silent on the issue as if nothing has happened at all.
From separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani to former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to the so called civil society groups, almost everyone is silent.
Officials in police said they were shocked at the response of the people of Kashmir towards such a incident.
"We were expecting people to take out candle light vigil and other peaceful protests against the incident but these so called champions of human rights are silent," said a senior police official on the condition of anonymity.
Observers said even the student community has been silent on the issue.
"This shows how biased the people and their leaders are that they want to hide the shame in the society in Kashmir," said a analyst.
