Unnao rape case: Prime accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar loses his 'Y' category security

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud also asked the state government to give security to the lawyer and a family friend assisting them in pursuing the case.

The bench also directed the state police to provide adequate security to the juvenile delinquent, who has been picked up in relation to the case at the observation home under the law. Relatives of the victim present outside the Kathua court accused the media of ignoring extensive reportage of this heinous crime for almost three months. The family had trouble even burying the body as some locals disallowed burial accusing the family of trying to occupy land in the name of a graveyard. "The father of the victim has no problem with the police investigation", she said, adding the prayer regarding transfer of the case outside the state and Chandigarh has been mentioned due to physical proximity from Kathua.

All eight accused in the Kathua rape-murder case were presented on Monday before Kathua Chief Judicial Magistrate A.S. Langeh amid tight security as the trial began.

The minor girl, aged about eight years, was abducted, raped and murdered in the Kathua district of Jammu region in January this year.
