Lawyer's remark triggers protest in Jammu

 JAMMU, Oct 21: Police on Wednesday had to intervene to clear a small mob outside the residence of lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat who had posted a controversial comment on the social media.

 Rajawat at one point was associated with the Kathua rape and murder case. She was the victim's family counsel for sometime.

The police action came earlier after receiving a call from Rajawat who said she was feeling insecure after a slogan-shouting mob gathered outside her home.

The lawyer had ruffled many a feather three days back when she posted a comment on the social media that purportedly hurt the religious feelings of the Hindu community.

The hurt was more since the comment criticising the community had come on the first day of the Navratra festival.

Rajawat represented the parents of the 8-year-old girl who was raped and murdered in Rasana village of Hiranagar tehsil in Kathua district in January 2018.

The accused were subsequently chargesheeted by police and convicted by the district and sessions judge court in Pathankot (Punjab) where the case was transferred due its religious and political overtone. - IANS
