Call off strike immediately; BCI tells Jammu, Kathua bar bodies

Protestors from different age groups thronged Parliament Street in Delhi, Bandra in Mumbai, Chandigarh, Bengaluru and Ajmer as many gave rousing speeches, recited poems and sang 'Hum honge kamiyab (we shall overcome)'.

Several similar protests have been organised over the past week to demand justice to the victims of the two cases.

PDP leader and state minister Naeem Akhtar said the party appreciated the "support and solidarity" that people have shown for the eight-year-old Kathua girl. In her tweet, she wrote, "Everyone should come". I was threatened yesterday that "we will not forgive you".

The Jammu Bar Association had opposed the case being taken up by Rajawat in February, a month after the eight-year-old was murdered before being raped for eight days. She is also chairperson and founder of an NGO, Voice for Rights, which works among underprivileged women and children.

In Unnao, a 17-year-old accused a BJPMLA, his brother and others of raping her when she had gone to meet him last year seeking a job. Earlier, taking strong note of some lawyers obs-tructing the judicial process in the Kathua gangrape and murder case, the Supreme Court had initiated a case on its own record, saying such impediment "affects the dispensation of justice and would amount to obstruction of access to justice".

Her family alleges that she was raped by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplice previous year.

One, the immediate dismissal of the Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for protecting a rapist and for abetting the death in police custody of the father of the rape victim in Unnao.

As Maliwal continued her fast in Delhi, authorities in Patna said a minor girl was gang-raped on Sunday. The incident took place at 12.30 a.m. near a railway line in the heart of Bihar's capital.

In the video, which was played during a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, Mir is purportedly telling reporters that the locals believed the investigation was motivated and that the main culprits were still at large. On Friday, when the girl was playing outside, Jena lured her to his house with chocolates and raped her, police said.
