Kathua rape-murder case: Accused to file fresh petition in SC for CBI probe
5/8/2018 11:15:19 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, May 8: Five accused persons in the Kathua rape-and-murder case are all set to file a fresh petition in the Supreme Court (SC) seeking handing over of the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
According to Ankur Sharma, the lawyer of five of the accused in the case, the petition will be filed in the Supreme Court in a few days.
On Monday, the apex court had directed that the trail in this case be shifted from Jammu to Pathankot in Punjab.
"A fresh petition seeking a CBI probe is ready. It shall be filed within a few days (in the Supreme Court)," Ankur Sharma said.
Sharma further said that a detailed counter on behalf of accused Sanjhi Ram, Vishal Jangotra and Parvesh Kumar was filed in the apex court, along with an additional affidavit seeking a CBI probe.
"The fastest way of getting a CBI probe in yesterday's hearing was through our counter and additional affidavit," he said, adding that their main concern was not the shifting of the case, but the CBI probe.
Denying that Monday's court order was a setback for them, Sharma said that it was a loss for the state government as it wanted the case to remain in Jammu and Kashmir, preferably in Ramban district.
He also added that it was a loss for the victim's family also as it had wanted the case to be shifted to Chandigarh.
"The court has called for a fast trial of the case on a day-to-day basis. We are hopeful that the trial will be completed in a year," Sharma said.
The state government's "plot" of introducing 221 witnesses to cause a delay in the trial was busted by the apex court, he said, adding that the case would now be heard on a daily basis.
"We are hopeful that the case will be transferred to the CBI," Sharma said.
