She told ANI that, “Today, I don’t know, I am not in my senses. I can be raped, I can be killed and may be they won’t allow me to practice in court. They (have) isolated me, I don’t know how I can survive,” Advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat told ANI.

She further added that, she has been called anti-Hindu and boycotted socially.

Further, Deepika said she would be approaching the Supreme Court to demand security for herself and her family.

She further added that,”I will tell this to the Supreme Court. I am feeling bad and it’s really unfortunate. You can well imagined my plight. But, I will stand for justice and we would seek justice for the eight-year-old girl”.

Bar Council of India (BCI) has formed a 5 Member Committee to probe the actions of Jammu and Kashmir Bar Association lawyers, who had stopped police from filing a chargesheet in the Kathua rape and murder case.

In connection with the case, two First Information Reports (FIRs) have been filed: one against eight people for allegedly being involved in the crime and another has been filed against a group of lawyers which had allegedly stopped the police from filing chargesheet against the eight accused.

Two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ministers leaders, Chandra Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh, have resigned following accusations of attending a rally in support of the miscreants responsible for the crime.

Alleged gangrape and murder of the eight-year-old girl, who belonged to nomadic Muslim community, took place in the Kathua district in January. After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.

Chargesheet has revealed gory details about the crime and this has led to a public outcry in various parts of the country.
