Kathua rape: Jammu Bar Association faces flak

Kathua case hearing LIVE updates: Things will be clear after Narco test boasts accused, next hearing on April 28

Reports suggest that the hearing in the matter are expected to run their natural course after the Supreme Court had sought explanations from the Bar Council of India, Jammu and Kashmir Bar Council, Jammu High Court Bar Association and Kathua District Bar Association over the lawyers causing obstruction in the case.

The apex court also directed the Jammu and Kashmir government to provide police protection to Kathua victim's family members and their lawyers.

The government has also assured that those who are involved in the case won't be spared.

The Court then issued notice to the State on the issue of transfer of trial, while directing the State to provide protection to victim's family, lawyer Deepika Rajawat and advocate Talib Hussain.

The father expressed satisfaction with the probe conducted so far by the state police, while vehemently opposing the plea of senior advocate Bhim Singh and Delhi-based lawyer Anuja Kapur that the investigation be transferred to the CBI. "This is the kind of investigation that they want to derail", Jaising said. At the outset, the victim's counsel Indira Jaising, who mentioned the matter for an urgent hearing in the forenoon, said the "biological father" of the victim had no grievance with regard to the police probe.

The top court will hear the Kathua case on 27 April.

The minor girl had disappeared from near her home in the forests in Kathua, on January 10.

The Crime Branch of police which probed the case filed a main charge sheet against seven persons and a separate charge sheet against a juvenile in a court in Kathua district. 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.

Jammu has been on tenterhooks since the brutal incident. He said that intentions of the prosecuting agency have been exposed as copies of the charge sheet were not provided to the accused so far.
