Kathua rape case: 100 witnesses examined; withdrawn lawyer was receiving dead threats

Pathankot: The trial of the Kathua rape case is being held on a day-to-day basis in Pathankot court. An eight-year-old daughter was raped and murdered in Rasana village of Kathua 10 months ago. The family of the victim has decided to drop their lawyer Deepika Rajawat as she was rarely available at the court hearings.

The victim’s father has told media persons on Wednesday here that so far the case has been heard 100 times by the court and around 100 witnesses have been examined during the trial, but Ms Rajawat had only appeared twice for the family.

Meanwhile, Ms Rajawat told the media that she was receiving death threats ever since she became associated with the case.

8 people, including Sanji Ram, the alleged mastermind of the crime, have been arrested.
