Facing criticism from various quarters over its ongoing agitation for demands including deportation of Rohingya from Jammu and CBI probe in Kathua rape and murder case, the Jammu High Court Bar Association (JHCBA) today welcomed the Supreme Court intervention into the matter and said it has full faith in the apex court.

“We have full faith in the Supreme Court and we welcome its intervention in the case. It is now up to the court to decide whether it should be handed over to the CBI for further investigation or not,” senior advocate and JHCBA member Surinder Kour told reporters here.

“We are now satisfied that the case has reached the Supreme Court and we are satisfied that justice will be delivered to the minor girl. Situation is grim in Jammu and we are hopeful that the Supreme Court will help defuse the crisis since it is the history of the court that whenever there is a crisis, its intervention helped in defusing the crisis, she said.

Defending their president B S Slathia, she said, “President is fatherly figure to 3,500 lawyers of the association and no incident of stopping or threatening the lawyer of victim family happened,” she said.

The women lawyers also stated that the Rassana rape and murder case has been politicized by the political parties both PDP & BJP for serving their own political ends and no-one is interested in rendering justice to the victim.

“Thing were being projected in wrong perspective. Instead of instead of projecting our main demand of deportation of illegally settled Rohingyas and clarity on the stand of the government on Tribal affairs , some agencies tried to give it another shape and projected the bar association as pro-rapist and anti-national,” said General Secretary, Jammu Bar Association Prem Sadotra. “The intervention of apex court is much needed for clarity,” he maintained. Bar association also said that Kathua case was deliberately raised to dilute our main demands.

Later, a meeting of various associations of civil society and prominent leaders of various organizations was organized in the High Court Complex, Jammu under the chairmanship of Jammu Bar president, wherein threadbare discussions were held over host of issues.
