 Jammu, April 21: The Jammu and Kashmir Police’s Crime Branch on Saturday said reports in a section of media regarding the Kathua rape-murder case were false and that medical experts had confirmed the sedation, sexual assault and subsequent murder of the eight-year-old girl. The Crime Branch statement on the case comes in the wake of reports in print and electronic media as well as social media regarding the case registered at the Hiranagar police station in Kathua district. “However, for the last couple of days, a section of print/electronic media has published/broadcast information/reports shared on the social media sites as well, which are far from truth,” the Crime Branch said.
