Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 15: Even as the Delhi High Court had issued notices to several media houses for disclosing the identity of the eight-year-old who was allegedly gang raped and killed in Kathua in the month of January this year, it is yet to ascertain how was the first person who disclosed victim's name and picture. The biggest question is whether name of the victim and his picture was made public as part of the bigger conspiracy? It is first time in the history that name of alleged rape victim was made public and so was his picture.
It is widely believed that some people had deliberately disclosed victim's name and her picture to create communal tension because same people have made public names of accused also who are from different religion.
Shockingly investigation agencies have yet not revealed who were the persons who clicked pictures of the dead body of the victim and published it on the media with name of the victim. Neither police nor other investigating agencies have taken note of publication of pictures and name of the victim.
Now a campaign has been started in the social media that name of the picture of the victim was deliberately made public as it was part of the deep rooted conspiracy being hatched by some groups.
Delhi High Court, which took up the matter on on its own after coming across the media reports on April 13, said it was "unfortunate" and "extremely distressing" that the victim's photograph was also displayed in the print and electronic media.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar issued notices to several media houses whose reports the court had come across and sought a response asking why action should not be taken against them.
The court directed media houses to not bring out any publication containing the girl's name, photograph, name of school or any other details which could disclose her identity.
The court said the news reports "disrespected and violated" the privacy of the victim which "cannot be permitted under any circumstance".
The bench said there are provisions in the penal law and under POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act which prohibit any kind of reporting that affects reputation and impinges on the privacy of victims, including children, of sexual offences.
