Asifa’s father requests to shift trial to Chandigarh due to fear of the ” Security of his family”
Father of Asifa Bano who was kidnapped, raped & murdered has reportedly requested the supreme court to transfer the trial to Chandigarh stating “security of his family” as the reason.
“We are apprehensive that the trial will not happen peacefully, seeing the condition in Jammu… Seeing that lawyers opposed it in Kathua and did not let the chargesheet proceed,” the family’s lawyer said.
Eight men charged that are accused of killing the minor includes a former revenue official, two police officers and a minor. They are accused of drugging the little girl, keeping her in a temple & raping her for days before finally killing her.
When the whole incident came out the country was left in a shock.A The murder was planned by the retired official, Sanji Ram as per the police charge sheet & the reason was to drive the Muslim community out of Kathua’s Rasana village.
