KATRA:  President Ram Nath Kovind condemned the "heinous and barbaric" Kathua gang-rape and murder case and said it is the collective responsibility of the society to ensure no girl suffers in the country, NDTV reported.

President Kovind came down heavily on the perpetrators of the "shameful" incident and questioned the kind of society we have become.

"After 70 years of independence, such an incident occurring in any part of the country is shameful. We have to think what kind of society we are becoming. It is our collective responsibility to ensure such a thing does not happen to any girl or woman," he said while addressing the sixth convocation of the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University in Jammu and Kashmir's Katra.
