Omar flays lawyer’s remark on Kathua rape victim’s parents

Srinagar: Former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday took exception to the remark by lawyer Deepika Rajawat on the Kathua rape and murder victim’s parents.

You had me on your side until you slipped in the snide remark about the genes

Responding to the family’s decision to drop her from representing the victim in the trial court, Deepika Rajawat had tweeted, “I was there with them when no one was. Now since the rainy days have passed, they are winding up with me just because I could not regularly attend the trial which is taken care of by senior criminal lawyers. I don’t blame them. it is the human tendency which travels in genes.”

Omar told the lawyer through his twitter handle, “You had me on your side until you slipped in the snide remark about the genes”.

The father of the eight-year-old Kathua rape-murder victim had moved an application in the Pathankot court on Wednesday to drop Deepika Rajawat from the case.

The father told reporters yesterday that the power of attorney given to Deepika Rajawat had been withdrawn because she had failed to appear for the family as the case had been heard about 100 times by the court, but she had appeared only twice on their behalf.

Many other people also took to twitter to criticize the lawyer for her controversial remarks.
