The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the Jammu and Kashmir government on a petition to shift the trial of the eight accused in the Kathua gang rape and murder case out of the state and ordered protection for the victim’s family and their lawyer.

Even as the trial got underway on Monday in a Kathua court, the father of the 8-year-old victim had moved the apex court seeking to shift the trial to Chandigarh, saying he would not get a fair hearing in Jammu.

The crime has evoked shock and outrage across the country and has resulted in resignation of two BJP ministers who addressed a rally in support of the accused from the Jammu and Kashmir government. Hundreds of lawyers have also marched in support of the accused.
