17-year-old Aasiya was found dead along with her sister-in-law 22-year-old Neelofar in a stream in Shopian on May 30. Their deaths had led to 47 days of protests in the town with locals alleging that security personnel were responsible for the crime.

The CBI took over the investigation into the case on September 17.
