A year after the shocking incident of rape and murder of an 8 year-old girl came in to light in Kathua’s Rassana, worries are up for the victims father.

The father of the deceased girl has been duped of Rs 10 lakh donation money, which was withdrawn from his account while he was unaware about any such transaction taking place in his account.

The donation money has been siphoned off from his account and the father is still under the dilemma of recovering over the loss of her daughter and now, the financial one as well.

Someone has withdrawn more than Rs 10 lakh from our joint account. We have no information about it. The statement shows consistent withdrawal and we are only left with Rs 35,000 in the account. We were told over Rs 1 crore had been donated from all over the world, but don’t know where it went,” he told India Today.

The bank has also responded over the incident after the case came into limelight and media started covering the issue.

Bank received the cheques with proper dates and impression. The family can block the cheque book, till further notice. Someone within their known circle has had access to all details and ensured bank protocol was followed,” said the branch manager of the Jammu and Kashmir Bank, where his account is functioning.

The Kathua gang rape and murder case had shocked the nation and the case is still ongoing in the court of law and the justice needs to be laid down against the culprits and the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
