This is not the first time crimes against minors perpetrated by ‘Maulvis’ have been reported from the valley. Earlier, a Maulvi was booked for allegedly raping scores of minor boys under the pretext of summoning djinns and driving away ‘evil eye’. In September last year, Supreme Court had accepted the appeal against the acquittal of Kashmiri ‘Peer’, Gulzar Ahmad Bhat, who was accused of raping four minor girls. Recently, a Madarsa teacher was held in Kashmir for sexually assaulting a minor student.
