When ANI tried to contact Jasrotia for his reaction on the rape case, he sent a text message: "Sir, I am going to hospital as my mother-in-law is not well."
The girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed in January.
The victim belonged to a nomadic Muslim tribe in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Police filed an FIR against lawyers of Jammu who tried to prevent Crime Branch officers from filing a charge sheet in a court on Monday in connection with the Kathua rape and murder case.
A special team of the crime branch has made a case of conspiracy, kidnapping, wrongful confinement, gang rape, murder and destruction of evidence against eight accused, which include: a retired state government official, his son and a minor nephew, four police officials and a civilian.
Meanwhile, the members of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) on Wednesday staged a protest here, demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)-led inquiry in the Kathua rape case. The protestors also demanded deportation of Rohingyas from Jammu.
The lawyers of Jammu Bar Association also observed a bandh and demanded a CBI inquiry into the case.
The lawyers have questioned the credibility of the Crime Branch officials, who according to them are mostly from Kashmir. (ANI)
