Barwani:The District Bar Association’s lawyers have refused to defend the two men accused of the gang-rape of a seven-year-old girl at Rajpur last week.
The Association’s President PK Mukati confirmed about the decision. Meanwhile, the victim’s mother has sought early conviction and capital punishment for the accused.
The girl was sleeping with her elder brother at a platform outside a temple on the August 25-26 night when the accused picked her up, took her nearby and sexually assaulted her. Later, they left her in front of her house. The culprits were arrested the next morning.
Both have been sent to judicial custody. A charge-sheet would be presented shortly. The victim has been referred to Indore for better treatment.
