‘Celebrity’ lawyer has a meltdown on Twitter after family of Kathua rape case victim remove her for non-appearance in court

The entire Kathua rape case has been murky and things got messier when self-proclaimed champions of human rights took it upon themselves to get justice for the little girl.

Advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat who shot to fame after she took on the case of the eight-year-old girl in Kathua who was brutally raped and murdered, was removed by the victim’s family as a lawyer for attending only two out of 110 hearings. However, she lost her cool when people started questioning her apparent lack of commitment for the cause which got her fame and quite a few awards.

The ‘human rights’ protector took to Twitter to blame the parents of the eight-year-old rape victim for ‘abandoning’ her. Deepika shows off her magnanimity by claiming how she was there with them “when no one was” but now “since the rainy days have passed”, they are winding up with her “just because” she could not regularly attend the trial. She attended 2 out of 110 hearings, skipping 108 hearings. Perhaps she was too busy collecting awards and giving interviews to international publications for her ‘great work’ of skipping hearings.

And what exactly does she mean by “rainy days”? Is she trying to imply that since the parents got compensation from the general public who donated out of the goodness in their hearts as well as government, they no longer need to get justice for their daughter?

And very generously, she puts up a disclaimer that she does not blame the grieving parents for removing her owing to her lack of attendance. Because it is “the human tendency which travels in genes.” Very, very classy, Deepika. Has she been spending time with a JNU freelance protestor lately?

But blaming parents is not the only thing Deepika has done lately. She implied that the parents themselves are not attending the hearing. In response to a video of the girl’s parents where they are saying they are removing Deepika as a lawyer because she does not attend hearings claiming threat to her life, one Tushar Sharma had responded on how it is unfortunate for the parents to suffer so much to get justice for their child. Sharma had mentioned how the father is visiting the court on all hearings, but every time he gets another date instead of justice.

Deepika swoops in to question how does he know the father attends the hearing on every date, implying that it was not just Deepika who was not attending the hearings, but even the father of the girl. Just a reminder: the girl and her family, biological as well as adoptive, are Bakarwals, a nomadic tribe in Kashmir and have no permanent settlement. To question them why they are not attending their daughter’s hearing is again a very classy move, Deepika. Perhaps they were not attending because they thought the lawyer who had come as a knight in black robes would attend it on their behalf and ensure that they get justice. Maybe because, as per the reports, the family has to sell up their livestock to travel to Pathankot to attend the hearings?

Here come the ‘defamation’ threat

Deepika, however, did not just stop at blaming the parents. She went ahead and threatened to sue those who questioned her. After all, as we recently saw how the lawyers who talk about human rights have an increased sense of entitlement.

There is a striking similarity between Deepika’s reactions and the drunk Irish lady’s reaction from the Air India flight. Both threatened to drag those who question them to the court. There is a difference between using law to protect oneself misusing it just because you could to harass another person.

The entire Kathua rape case has been murky and things got messier when self-proclaimed champions of human rights took it upon themselves to get justice for the little girl.

After the incident had come to light, left Wing activist Shehla Rashid had collected funds for the legal aid of the girl, and she herself claimed to have received more than ₹40 lakh from donors. But according to reports, the victim’s family didn’t receive any of this fund. The family was having to sell livestock to provide for travel expenses to attend the trial at Pathankot, the reports said.

After Shehla was bombarded with questions on Twitter after these details came out, she deleted her Twitter account.

Earlier, advocate Talib Hussain, who was a prominent activist demanding justice for the victim, was accused of rape by two women. He is also accused of domestic violence and attempt to kill his wife over dowry.
