Written by Fred on June 10, 2019
Six men have been found guilty of the rape, torture and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Indian-administered Kashmir.
The victim, who belonged to a Muslim nomadic tribe, was found in a forest near Kathua city in January 2018.
The case triggered widespread anger and made headlines when Hindu right-wing groups protested over the arrest of the men.
All of them had pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.
Eight people, including a former government official, four policemen and a minor, were charged. One of them has been acquitted and the minor is set to be tried separately.
