Kathua rape: Jammu Bar Association faces flak

He has demanded in his plea that the case should be transferred to Chandigarh, claiming that the trial might get influenced in Jammu.

The apex court also directed the Mehbooba Mufti government to provide police protection to victim's family members and the counsel representing them. Supreme Court has issued a notice to the J&K government and sought reply by April 27 on the plea filed by the victim's father.

The gangrape and murder of the eight-year-old girl, who belonged to nomadic Muslim community, took place in the Kathua district in January. "The atmosphere is highly polarised", Jaising told apex court.

According to WWE's storyline, it was Rusev's wife Lana who pleaded with management to remove her husband from such a deadly match. The Middle Eastern event revolves around one big match for the evening: a 50-man Royal Rumble match.

Counsel also said that there should be protection for the victim as well as the lawyer who has a right to protect the interest of the victims in the Court.

A section of lawyers on Monday marched from the Indian Law Institute to the Bar Council of India (BCI), demanding disciplinary proceedings against the Jammu Bar Association for their alleged "misconduct" in the aftermath of the Kathua rape case. The court was, however, adjourned soon after the hearing began as the defence claimed that the Jammu and Kashmir Police had not provided a copy of the chargesheet to them. Talking to media, Ankur Sharma, said, "Next date of hearing is April 28". "We are handicapped", he said.

"Be that as it may, we do not intend to enter into this sphere (transfer of case to CBI) at this stage", a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said, while taking note of the submission that the victim's father was satisfied with the police probe so far. After holding the girl in captivity for days, the accused killed her by crushing her head with a rock and disposing off her body near the temple. The minor was kept sedated and sexually assaulted once again before she was bludgeoned to death, revealed the chargesheet. The accused are set to be ready for narco tests as well.
