Kotak Mahindra fires employee for supporting Kathua rape on Facebook

In chilling revelations, the chargesheet said the eight-year-old girl, belonging to the Bakherwal community, was allegedly raped by six men, who had held her in captivity in a small village temple in Kathua district for a week in January.

The alleged rape and murder of minor Asifa in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua area led to protests across the nation on Sunday. She was then strangulated and her head hit with a stone twice leading to her death.

Meanwhile, the eight people accused of raping and killing the eight-year-old child told a sessions court they were not guilty of the crime and even asked the district and sessions judge for a narco analysis test, PTI reported. Ram, the 19-year-old boy, Parvesh, and Jangotra have now reportedly been arrested.

The trial at the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in Kathua in the Kathua rape and murder case was postponed on Monday to April 28.

The court ordered that the government should continue to provide security to the victim's family. However, the court refused to hear the intervenors at this stage.

Subsequently, Jaising raised the issue of safety of the counsel for the victim's family.

A separate chargesheet was filed for the juvenile.

"We have already passed the order on Friday", the bench said.

Reports said that as the trial began inside the court, Ram's daughter Madhu Sharma protested outside, demanding a CBI probe.

The Jammu Bar Association also backed the pro-rapist rally and backed the rapist.

Sanji Ram, 60: He is the prime accused in the case. Court directs state to provide police protection. There is 490-page copy and I did not receive any copy. So fair trial is impossible.

The Court made it clear that it will not interfere with who is to investigate the case.

The case is now also being compared to that of Nirbhaya, who was gangraped in a moving bus in 2012 and died of injuries a few days later. She was told to give up the case.

Alleging further professional misconduct, the memorandum alleged that BS Salathia, the president of the Jammu Bar Association, also threatened Deepika Singh Rajawat, the victim's lawyer, for pursuing the case.

"I don't know till when I will be alive". I can be raped, I can be killed and maybe they won't allow me to practise in court.

The ruthless and cruel incidents which took place recently in Kathua and Unnao have left the whole nation with huge dismay, insecurity and protests. He is said to have incited his nephew to abduct the girl. She claimed that the girl was not raped, but murdered and has demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation over the same.
