Kathua-based lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat, who is representing the family of the eight-year-old gang rape victim, has filed a petition at the Supreme Court alleging that she is facing life threats for pursuing the matter.

Another plea was filed by Delhi-based lawyer Anuja Kapur to transfer the case from Kathua trial court to a local court in the national capital. Kapur had also sought the transfer of probe to the CBI, besides seeking compensation for the victim’s family.

The Supreme Court had agreed to hear the petitions at 2:00 pm on April 16.

It may be mentioned that the apex court had taken note of some lawyers obstructing the judicial process in the Kathua gang rape incident on April 13 and initiated a case on its own record, saying that such impediment affects the dispensation of justice and would amount to obstruction of access to justice.
