SSP Ganderbal said that the accused has been arrested and police is investigating the matter.

Police said they were questioning the school principal who issued the birth certificate. Protests by students, political parties and the civil society have spread across the Kashmir Valley, with calls for strictest possible punishment. "The doctors have given an opinion that he is around 20-years-old", the official said.

Angry villagers assembled in the main markets of Sumbal and Shadipora to protest against the minor's rape allegedly by a neighbour on May 8 at Tarigam Sumbal in Bandipora.

In January 2018, an eight-year-old girl was abducted, starved for a week and murdered after she was raped by several people in the southern Kathua area of the territory.

A controversy, however, started after the accused produced a certificate from a private school that says he is a minor.

Baseer Ahmad Khan - the region's top administrator - also appealed for calm and said in a statement that the "enquiry of Sumbal incident is being conducted on a fast-track basis".

People in large numbers took to the streets across the state capital and other places demanding death penalty for the man accused of raping a three-year-old girl last week. "Times like these, Shariah law seems apt so that such paedophiles are stoned to death".

"Justice will be done and the culprit will be given fair punishment as per the law", he said. Malik directed the Kashmir divisional commissioner and Inspector General of Police to personally monitor the investigation.

"These child rapists are out there because we have failed as a society".

As a mark of solidarity with the rape victim, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association (JKHCBA) on Monday remained abstained from court work. We assure that perpetrator of the crime will be brought to justice.

Another separatist leader with a wide following in Kashmir, Syed Ali Geelani, said the alleged crime was "a black stain on the social fabric" of Kashmir. Clashes erupted in Ganziwara area of Anantnag district when a group of youth pelted 40 Battalion CRPF Camp with stones.

The little girl was raped on 9 May before the Iftar (evening meal during the holy month of Ramadan), the victim's family stated in its complaint.
