Deepika Rajawat dropped as lawyer for Kathua rape and murder case
Srinagar: Deepika Rajawat might not be the lawyer for the high profile rape and murder of aneight-year-old Kathua girl as the family of the victim has decided to drop her as she has barely been available at the court hearings, media reports said.
According to reports the family has already moved an application in the Pathankot court in Punjab praying that Rajawat shall not represent them and the power of attorney was being withdrawn.
“So far the case has been heard 100 times by the court and around 100 witnesses have been examined during the trial, but Rajawat had only appeared twice for the family,” victims father was quoted saying.
The victim was raped and subsequently murdered in Rasana village of Kathua district in Jammu and Kashmir in January.
Eight people, including Sanji Ram, the alleged mastermind of the crime, have been arrested.
