“This incident is deeply shocking and must act as a wake-up call for all of us as a society,” Shehla said.

“JKPM calls for a thorough investigation into the incident and the guilty must be given the strictest possible punishment. Whether the girl committed suicide or not must be investigated. Police must ensure a full proof safety of witnesses and complainants,” Shehla appealed.
