'I can be raped, killed'


Srinagar: Deepika S Rajawat, who is the counsel of Kathua rape victim’s family, today alleged a threat to her life and said that she will tell the Supreme Court about the danger to her life.

“I don’t know how long I will be alive. I can be raped…My modesty can be outraged. I can be killed, I can be damaged. I was threatened yesterday that ‘we will not forgive you’. I am going to tell the Supreme Court tomorrow that I am in danger,” Rajawat said on Sunday.

Pertinently, the Supreme Court today  directed the Jammu and Kashmir government to provide security to the family of the eight-year-old Kathua gangrape and murder victim, the lawyer and a family friend assisting them in pursuing the case.

The apex court also took note of a plea of the victim’s father seeking transfer of the trial of the case from Kathua, preferably to Chandigarh and sought response of the state government. (Agencies with PTI inputs)
