NEW DELHI, Apr 13 (Agencies): The family of the Kathua rape victim should get justice, said Home Minister Rajnath Singh in an interview with news channel India Today.

Singh said that he is in favour of ensuring proper justice to the family of the 8-year-old girl, who was raped and killed in Kathua three months ago.

Further, he said that the government is committed to the safety of women and that he has spoken to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to discuss the case. Singh noted that he has also raised the issue with BJP’s national president Amit Shah and party’s J&K unit in-charge Ram Madhav. He said that Ram Madhav may visit Jammu to take first-hand stock of the situation.

“I have spoken to Mehboobaji and my party workers… we should take steps towards delivering justice (to the victim) and restore normalcy. I have also spoken to my party’s national president and the party’s in charge. He is in touch with people there,” he said.

“The victims’ family should get justice,” the minister said when asked about the case.

When pointed out that the PDP had toed a different line on various issues including surgical strikes and ties with Pakistan, he said that PDP and BJP are two different political parties and hence there may be the difference in opinion. “But on issues that are linked to the country and people, we are on the same platform.”

“I don’t have any knowledge that PDP may break alliance with the BJP,” he replied to a question. “There is no threat to the alliance,” he added.
