Union minister VK Singh

A three-judge Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Kanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud also directed the state to provide protection to the lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat who is appearing for the victim's family and the counsel assisting the family.

The plea further says that politicians must be stopped from meeting the juvenile accused in the case and that the status report of the case should be submitted to the Supreme Court as the case proceeds. The court will hear the plea at 2pm today. Senior Counsel Indira Jaising, representing the girl's father, said the situation in Jammu was not fit for a free and fair trial.

The Jammu High Court Bar Association, along with other local Bar associations, had called for a Jammu bandh on 11 April, alleging the police was targeting the Dogra Hindu community by filing a chargesheet against a few members of the community. 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.


Sanji Ram fixed as mastermind, his son Vishal, sub-inspector Anand Dutta, two Special Police Officers Deepak Khajuria and Surender Verma, head constable Tilak Raj and civilian Parvesh Kumar, were booked under Sections 302, 376, 201 and 120-B of the Ranbir Penal Code. The PIL filed by the victim's lawyer, seeks the transfer of case outside the J&K to Delhi. During the hearing, the victim's father expressed satisfaction with the probe so far, conducted by Jammu and Kashmir Police and opposed the plea for CBI investigation demanded by others. As per the chargesheet filed in the case by the police, the minor girl was kept in a temple for nearly a week. Talking to media, Ankur Sharma, said, "Next date of hearing is April 28". Their lawyers have requested the court that the accused should undergo narco-test.

The minor girl, aged about eight years, was abducted, raped and murdered in the Kathua district of Jammu region in January this year. The minor was kept sedated and sexually assaulted once again before she was bludgeoned to death, revealed the chargesheet.
