Newspoint Bureau

Jammu Tawi, April 16

One of the accused in Kathua gangrape on Monday demanded from the court the narco-test for all the accused in raping and murdering eight-year-old nomad girl.

However, the Chief Judicial Magistrate has postponed the next hearing of the case to April 28, Court sources here said.

They said that the Court has also directed that chargesheet copies should be provided to all the accused.

The alleged conspirator, Sanji Ram, while speaking to media outside the Court, asked for narco-test for all the accused persons.

“We are ready for narco tests,” he said adding, “ I have faith in God and he will do the justice.”

However, Sanji Ram’s daughter said that only a CBI enquiry could determine who is guilty.

“There was no rape, only murder,” she claimed and said that hang them if they are guilty.

The family with supporters also blamed media for influencing investigation.

Meanwhile, the Court has also directed that chargesheet copies should be provided to all accused.

Kathua rape and murder case has ignited pan-India protest.

Two of the BJP ministers–Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga– had tendered resignation after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti sought their resignations for allegedly supporting those demanding CBI probe during a rally taken out in village Rasana on March 1.

The resignations however, have been accepted and sent to the Governor N N Vohra. The ministers said that they resigned as the image of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party was being tarnished.

However, Choudhary Lal Singh has asked the Ms Mufti to resign on moral grounds as she is in-charge Home and the police department and failed to trace the missing girl for a week.
