Protests Begin In Jammu After Lawyers Remarks 730X365

Jammu, October 21 (IANS) A crowd of some gathered outside lawyer Deepika Singh Rajawat's house in Jammu after making controversial comments on social media, which the police intervened to remove.

Rajawat was at one time involved in the Kathua rape and murder case and was for some time a lawyer for the victim's family. After the crowd gathered outside the house, Rajawat called the police and said that she felt insecure.

The lawyer posted a comment on social media three days ago, allegedly for hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindu community. This comment was made on the first day of Navratri festival, so it hurt people more.

Rajawat fought a case on behalf of parents in January 2018 after raping and killing an 8-year-old girl in Rasana village of Hiranagar tehsil of Kathua district.

The accused were later convicted by a District and Sessions Judge court in Pathankot (Punjab).
