Petition to the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India to move Asifa rape case out of J&K

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!

A little girl, 8 year old Asifa was kidnapped, brutally raped and murdered in Jammu and Kashmir, in the month of January. A retired revenue official, juvenile and two police officers were involved too.

While the act in itself was horrific and shocks the conscience of humanity, it is equally (if not more) deplorable that a section of police officials, politicians and party workers from the party at the Centre and above them the Bar Association of J&K (which consists of learned advocates who are supposed to be guardians of law) stood for the accused and are instigating people on communal lines. It is also to be noted that they have waved the Indian flag in the course of their shameless protest. To top it all, the lawyer handling the case has allegedly been intimidated by some lawyers of Jammu Bar Association.

Therefore, i request the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India to take suo moto cognizance of the matter or transfer the case out of the state of Jammu & Kashmir where there is every possibility that the witnesses/lawyers would be threatened.
