India is on the path of becoming a developed country but some incidents take it
backward and present it as an under-developed one. Recently a heinous incident happened that shattered the country. It was the rape case that happened in Kathua. It refers to the abduction, rape and murder of an 8-Year old girl Asifa Bano. She lived in Rasana in Kathua, Kashmir. The incident came to light when a
chargesheet was filed at the police station in which her father reported that he has sent his daughter to see the grazing horse but she did not return by 4 p.m. when all the horses did on the 10th of
January, 2018. Then her dead body was found and taken into custody
of the police. The sympathy for her started being seen from every nook and corner of the country. The government is looking to pass an ordinance strengthening the punishment against such cases. We hope that the laws would be stricter and our country can re-shine as a democratic one.
