All Kathua rape accused plead not guilty, ask for narco test


The eight people accused of raping and killing an eight-year-old pleaded not guilty and asked the judge for a narco-analysis test as the trial into the case, which has become the focal point of outrage across the country, began here today. One of the accused, a juvenile, has also moved a bail application. The eight have been accused of raping and murdering an eight-year-old girl to “punish” the Bakarwal community she belonged to.

According to the chargesheets filed by the Crime Branch, the abduction, rape and killing of the girl was part of a carefully planned strategy to remove the nomadic community from the area.
