JAMMU, Apr 15 (Agencies): The family of the eight-year-old girl who was raped and murdered in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua has decided to request the Supreme Court to transfer the trial to another state.

The murder of the child, who belonged to a nomadic Muslim community, outraged the country after details were exposed in a police chargesheet last week.

It became heavily politicised and two BJP ministers from Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's cabinet, who defended the accused, had to be shunted out. Citing that the local lawyers stopped the Crime Branch from filing the chargesheet at the Kathua district court, family lawyers said they would ask for a transfer.

“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,” a lawyer of the family said. “We request the Supreme Court to transfer this case to some other state,” the lawyer added.
