JAMMU, Apr 14 (Agencies): Bakarwal lawyer and social activist Talib Hussain, who has been leading from the front for justice in the Kathua gang-rape and murder case, was allegedly attacked by some people reportedly affiliated to the Bharatiya Janata Party in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur town on Friday night.
The police, however, said, it was a minor scuffle during a debate on television and there was no attack.
On January 21, Hussain was arrested by the police while leading a protest rally in Kathua town against the local authorities for failing to arrest the girl’s murderers and allegedly hushing up the case.
Hussain was arrested on amid a candle light protest on Kathua highway by more than hundred people against the brutal killing of the girl.
He was only released the next day after outrage in the Assembly. Since then he has been at the forefront to secure justice for the victim.
Hussain had earlier said it was sheer “hooliganism” by lawyers, first for protesting against the filing of chargesheet, and then calling for a bandh to mobilise the majority community against tribals, who have been living alongside Hindus for decades. He said the lawyers want to shift the case to CBI to shield the culprits.
