Punishment is a must

Dear Editor,
It is distressing that a 35-year-old man from Uttersoo area of Anantnag in south Kashmir was raped and impregnated a 14-year-old girl. According to family members of the victim, the girl complained of abdominal pain a few days ago. Her father first took her to a local spiritual healer but due to her deteriorating condition, she was later hospitalized at Anantnag where she was declared eight months pregnant by the doctors. The family members say that the accused – a man living in their neighbourhood – is a relative of the victim's mother, and would visit their home on one pretext or another. During this period, the accused lured the minor girl and had allegedly raped her on several occasions in the last months.
The incident has sent shockwaves in the locality and residents are demanding rigorous punishment for the accused. However, police official confirmed the arrest of the accused and said that further investigations are underway. Administration should take a strong action against the culprit and he should be punished in a way that people can recall it forever, so that such heinous incident could not occur again.
