ANANTNAG, Apr 18: The Kashmir-based activists, journalists, lawyers and civil society members who rightfully upped an ante against two BJP ministers for attending a rally organized by Hindu Ekta Manch, have no sympathy for a Kashmiri teenage girl who was sexpolited by some politicians and police officers.
The Kulgam sex scandal, first reported by Early Times on February 3 has not been yet charge-sheeted by Kulgam police.
The victim in a fresh statement to a New Delhi-based media outlet has alleged that a police officer asked her to drop the name of a PDP legislator from south Kashmir "as naming him will create 'hangama' (uproar)."
The girl has also alleged that she wasn't taken to identify police officials and politicians involved in the flesh trade.
As reported earlier, the investigation by the police into Kulgam sex scandal, that surfaced two months ago, is moving at a snail's pace.
A Special Investigative Team (SIT) constituted by SSP Kulgam in February hasn't yet submitted its report. According to sources, the SIT continued to probe the case, but it had not done any credible exercise to establish the involvement of politicians and police officers in the sex racket as claimed by the victim.
The victim girl from Kulgam in South Kashmir has alleged that she was sexually exploited by some influential people and that there exists a big sex racket that has connections within and outside of the Valley.
Her revelations in a video clip went viral on social media. The girl had said that she was lured into the racket by some locals and later handed over to the pimps who were operating with the help of top men in politics and police.
She said that the sex ring was operating under the patronage of politicians and bureaucrats. The girl claimed that pimp of the racket, currently in custody, was in touch with a lawmaker of PDP.
Kulgam police had already registered a case U/S 363,120B, RPC at police station Kulgam and taken by investigation by constituting a SIT. However, it hasn't taken any action under immoral Traffic Prevention Act.
