Kishtwar, Dec 17: In a much publicized rape case of 22 year old visually handicapped girl by Territorial Army Jawans of 159 BN in remote Patimhala area of Kishtwar District, Munsiff Kishtwar Umesh Sharma today transferred the case to Army court for Court Martial.
As per the details available with Early Times Kishtwar police produced challan in case FIR No: 279/2011 u/s 452/376/109 RPC registered at police station Kishtwar on 9-12-2013 against Sajjad Hussain Mir son of Ghulam Ali Mir resident of Rakna Palmar A/P Army Sepoy No. 12944666Y 159 BN TA (Home and Hearth) C Coy Dogra and Daya Krishan son of Chuni Lal resident of Suid Dachhan Tehsil Marwah Kishtwar A/P Army Sepoy No 12944337H 159 Bn TA (Home and Hearth) C Coy Dogra.
While recounting the horror, the victim in her statement said that the accused in a well coordinated plan entered the residence of the victim on 25-9-2011 at around 5 PM when the whole family had gone to their farm . She said that among the four Territorial Army personnel who entered inside her residence on that day, one Sajjad Hussain Sheikh Son of Ali Sheikh resident of Palmar in Kishtwar District, an army personal posted with 159 Territorial Army committed rape on her in presence of her 10 year old niece, while the other accused gave cover to the culprits.
She said that another person Daya Krishan of Dachhan Kishtwar terrorized her niece when accuse Sajjad Hussain Sheikh committed rape on her. The victim who is 80% visually handicapped said that she can recognize accused Sajjad since he (Sajjad) is a local and often visited her home during search operation launched by the security forces in the area. She said that the accused after committing rape on her, robed cash/valuable items from her house along with his 3 other colleagues.
She said that during search, her family members noticed that the accused decamped with Rs. 25000 cash, some gold and silver items. She said that on the morning of 26-09-2011 when her niece comes out of the brutal shock narrated the whole story to the family members and said that after listening the whole story, her family approaches the police for registration of an FIR against the culprits under relevant section of rape but said that police did only registered the FIR of theft. She said that Kishtwar police only after the lapse of nearly 12 days i.e. on 6-10-2011 registered a rape case against the accuse that too succumbed public pressure. It is worthwhile to mention that both the accused Territorial Army personals expedited their resources for seeking bail from honorable court after the plight of the 22 year old visually handicapped girl was first highlighted by the "Early Times" in its 23rd August 2012 edition.
