  • 'Give security to Kathua victims', Supreme Court directs JK government

The 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. Talking to media, Ankur Sharma, said, "Next date of hearing is April 28".

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra considered the submission of senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for the victim's father, that his family, their lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat and their friend Talib Hussain, feared for their lives in a communally "polarised situation" at Kathua. The court has agreed to hear the plea at 2 PM today.

Jaising told the court that a fair trial is an inseparable facet of Article 21 of the Constitution, and there is an apprehension in the mind of the petitioner, the biological father of the victim, that there would be no fair trial as there have been protests by the members of the Bar.

The bench made it clear that it would confine itself only to the safety and security aspect at the moment. She added that she had been called anti-Hindu and boycotted socially. She also reiterated the stand that "it is not for the United Kingdom to prescribe a solution or act as a mediator...it is for India and Pakistan to find a lasting and peaceful resolution, taking into account the wishes of the Kashmiri people". However there is an attempt to derail it, she also said.
