Lord Nazir Ahmed raises in British Parliament, gang rape and murder of 8 years old Kashmiri girl

LONDON - The rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl at Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir was raised by a Pakistani-origin member of the House of Lords.

The issue was raised by Nazir Ahmed a day before Modi is due to arrive here for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. Ahmed, who was at the forefront of an anti-India demonstration on January 26 outside the Indian mission here, will reportedly lead another protest on April 18.

Ahmed who wanted the UK government to take up the issue of self-determination in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and the northeast, mentioned the Kathua rape case while asking how Britain could help bring her assailants and those in other cases to justice.
