Another Bakarwal girl raped in Jammu

A 13 years old girl of the only muslim family in Ramban village of Jammu was raped by the local hindus. The girl was grazing cattle when she was caught by the accused and, on pleading to let go, was beaten. Out of threat she didn't tell anyone about the incident till she realized that she was pregnant. On approaching the accused, he gave him some medicines which caused excessive bleeding. The girl was admitted in Ramban Hospital and later in Jammu Hospital to undergo abortion as her life was at risk because of the pregnancy. To mark, a year ago another muslim girl was gang-raped in Kathua. Muslims in the area live in fear and threat. People protested against the slow investigation and alleged that the rape was another attempt to remove muslims from Jammu.
