Supreme Court doesn't favour CBI probe into Kathua rape-cum-murder case

India’s Outrage Over Gang Rape Murder of 8-Year-Old Girl

The bench also ordered the state government to provide escalated security cover to the lawyer and family of the deceased eight-year-old girl. While a sessions court will hold a fast-track trial for the seven adult accused, the chief judicial magistrate of Kathua will take the process ahead for the juvenile as it is the designated court under the juvenile act.

While in north Kerala, a journalist named his two-month-old daughter after the Kathua victim- Asifa and on the other hand, a writer asked his publishers to contribute all his royalty to the victim's family.

The father of the victim had requested the apex court to transfer the trial to Chandigarh, citing a backlash and lack of security for his family.

One, the immediate dismissal of the Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for protecting a rapist and for abetting the death in police custody of the father of the rape victim in Unnao.

"There have been demands for CBI probe". 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. As per reports, Supreme Court will be hearing a plea filed by the victim's father over the transfer of case at around 2 PM today.

The murder of the Kathua child, who hailed to a nomadic Muslim community, heated the country after details were uncovered in a police charge sheet last week.

There was the heavy police presence at the Kathua complex following the tension on April 9 when members of the local bar association did not allow the Crime Branch to submit its charge sheet in the case.

The Court made it clear that it will not interfere with who is to investigate the case. The association today fielded a senior woman advocate Surinder Kaur who said, "We are now satisfied that the case has reached the Supreme Court and we are satisfied that justice will be delivered to the minor girl". Former vice-chancellor of Lucknow University and social activist, Prof Roop Rekha Verma said, "It is a political matter where accused are being supported by top politicians of the country". "Navratron ke dinon me aap chhoti chhoti bachchiyon ki aarti utaarte ho, unki pooja karte ho aur dusri ore phir unhi ke saath rape karte ho?" It further stated that "by the time you arrive you have sufficiently addressed both these matters", and that "when you arrive and address "Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath", you can tell us and the world that those extraordinary measures are that you are putting into place to show that enough is enough". "DNA samples have been matched", the lawyer said, adding that she hailed the state police.
