Indian SC stays trial in Kathua rape and murder case

Indian SC stays trial in Kathua rape and murder case”

The Supreme Court Friday, April 27, ordered a 10-day stay - till May 7 - on the trial in the Kathua child gangrape and murder case. The report, accompanied by an affidavit from the registrar general of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, claimed that the lawyers had interfered with the proceedings and stalled it. "This report is nothing but a whitewash", Dinesh submitted.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, for the victim's father, urged the Court to monitor the trial.

The apex court on Thursday said it would transfer the case from the local court in the "slightest possibility" of lack of fair trial, and added that the "real concern" was to hold proper prosecution. Chief Justice Misra said the Court could examine the prospect of fast-tracking the trial and "oversee its progress".

The Centre is a respondent in a related petition seeking transfer of investigation from the Jammu and Kashmir Police to the Central Bureau of Investigation, a plea opposed by the murdered girl 's father, IANS reported.

The apex Court lawyers earlier argued that the demand for a CBI probe had more to do with efforts to influence the State police investigation, which led to the arrest of eight men.

Advocate General Jahangir Iqbal Ganai, along with standing counsel Shoeb Alam, appearing for Jammu and Kashmir, opposed the prayer for a CBI probe and said the SIT of the crime branch was investigating the case.

The Committee also came to the conclusion that the media had misreported the entire episode, and that reports stating that lawyers in Kathua and Jammu were siding with the accused were false. These accused include policemen who are suspected of destroying evidence. A separate charge sheet was filed against a juvenile in a court in Kathua district last week.

The Supreme court was hearing the case of alleged rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl belonging to Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua area.The case dates back to January when a minor girl belonging to the Sunni-Muslim nomadic Bakerwal Tribe was allegedly abducted, drugged, gang-raped, tortured and killed.
