The body of the victim, Asifa Bano who belonged to a Muslim nomadic tribe, was found in a forest on 17th of January near Kathua city of Indian-administered Kashmir.

People are angry that a gruesome crime has become a religious flashpoint.
Police have arrested eight men, including a retired government official, four police officers and a juvenile in connection with Asifa’s death.
