Media can't disclose Kathua victim's identity: Delhi HC
ActIT Jammu, ASP.net Projects, Java, Vb.net, C# Training Jammu
NEW DELHI, Apr 13 (Agencies): The Delhi High Court on Friday prohibited media houses from disclosing the identity of the eight-year-old girl, who was gang-raped and killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, in future reports.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar, which took up the issue on its own after coming across print and electronic media reports, sought a response from the media houses, asking why action should not be taken against them on the matter.

The girl from the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community had disappeared from near her home in the forests next to Rassana village in Kathua, 90-kms from Jammu on January 10.

The state police Crime Branch, which probed the case, filed a main chargesheet against seven accused persons and a separate chargesheet against a juvenile in a court in Kathua district earlier this week.

The chargesheet revealed chilling details about how the girl was allegedly kidnapped, drugged, raped inside a place of worship before being killed.
