National Media wrongly projected the on-going agitation in Jammu : Women Lawyers

Jammu, April 15, (Scoop News)- Women Lawyers of J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu in a press conference highlighted the following issuesDeportation of illegal immigrants / Rohingyas & Bangladeshis from Jammu region.. Withdrawal of Minutes of Meeting/ illegal directions of Tribal Affairs Department, J&K.Fair & independent CBI probe in Rassana murder case
The Press Confrence was addressedby Surinder Kour, Senior Advocate & Gagan Basotra, Advocate & Incharge Media Cell J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu.. The Women Lawyers highlighted the following issues :
The Women Lawyers unanimously felt that the Electronic Media at the National level has wrongly projected the on-going agitation only in support of the alleged accused in Rassana rape & murder case, which infact was one of the issues for rendering justice to the victim family through a CBI probe. The Women lawyers have also stated that no office bearer of the J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu, has ever restrained or stopped any lawyer to appear in any case including the case of Rassana rape & murder case.
Mrs. Surinder Kour also clarified that the statement attributable to the Bar Association President BS Slathia in regard to inciting of youth for raising Arms is factually incorrect , baseless and has been quoted out of context. Infact Mr. Slathia had only warned the State Government not to create any situation by rehabilitating the Rohingyas & Bangladeshies in and around Jammu city which is creating grave threat to security as admitted by the State & Central Governments. She further stated that Mr. Salathia had never provoked or incited the youth to pickup the arms instead of Tringa in their hands as has been highlighted in the National Media, besides few politicians. In fact Mr. Slathia had warned the government that the people of Jammu as also the youth had been protesting peacefully and urged the government to immediately address the issues being agitated by them and don’t allow the situation to reach at an alarming stage as that in Kashmir where the youth find them self trapped and exploited.
The Women Lawyers also stated that the Rassana rape and murder case has been politicized by the political parties both PDP & BJP for serving their own political ends and no-one is interested in rendering justice to the victim. Mrs. Surinder Kour, also highlighted the defects in the Charge sheet of Rassan rape & murder case conducted by the Crime Branch investigation . It was further emphasized that since one of the member of the SIT was involved in a rape and murder case which raises the question of the integrity and professional efficiency of the SIT. It was also pointed out that the case has been politicized which is evident by the fact that the Chief Minister who is the Minister Incharge of the Home Department has written to the Hon’ble Chief Justice of J&K High Court for conducting the trial within 90 days when the matter is yet admittedly to be further investigated by the Crime Branch and there are 221 witnesses cited in the said challan. It is clearly evident that the case is being politicized to appease certain sections of the Society in Kashmir and also to disturb communal harmony in Jammu .
Amongst those who were present in the Press Conference included: Mrs. Radha Sharma, Ms. Deepali Arora, Ms. Anju Sharma, Prabhjot Kour, Surbhi Gupta, Jyoti Sharma, Ms. Deepali Kapoor, Ms. Shalni Sharma, Smiley Gupta, Ms. Seema Sharma,Ms. Ms. Meenakshi Slathia, Ms. Nishu Kanth, Ms. Deepa Sharma, Ms. Isha Ms. Alisha Kohli, Gyatri Dogra, Ms. Bhomika, Sushma Sharma & many others.
