Jammu:
The brutal Kathua rape and murder case trial, which began  on Monday, will  witness its next hearing on April 28. The case is related to eight people allegedly holding an eight-year-old girl captive in a small village temple in the state's Kathua district for a week in January this year, sexually assaulting her, and then murdering her.

It is worth mentioning here that the Kathua rape case trials began a day after protests were staged in various parts of the country by citizens outraged by the heinous crime.

On the other hand, the accused were ready to undergo narco tests, said their counsel. The accused in the Kathua case include a juvenile, against whom a separate charge sheet was filed. The juveline and the other accused will be facing separate trials.

While seven of the accused perpetrators will be tried in the sessions court, the chief judicial magistrate of Kathua will hold the trial for the juvenile. The accused include four police officers and a retired government official.

The charge sheets filed by the Jammu and Kashmir Police's crime branch state that the abduction, rape, and killing of the minor Bakerwal girl was part of a carefully planned strategy aimed at forcing the minority nomadic community out of the area.(KNB)
