Lawyer held for cheating, raping woman | Hyderabad News

AGRA: Nirbhaya rapists' legal advisor, AP Singh, has taken on the case to defend the four men charged in the rape and murder of Hathras. Nirbhaya's lawyer Seema Kushwaha will compete against him, reports Anuja Jaiswal. “It was a formal visit. I had previously signed a Vakalatnama with them. I also visited the crime scene, ”he told TOI. Kushwaha had the Vakalatnama signed by the victim's family last Sunday, TOI reported.
"The girl's family has been misled and provoked by those involved in caste politics … There is no caste divide in the village," he said. Former Union Minister and National President of Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha, Manvendra Singh, accompanied Singh on the visit.
Singh was often in the news for his controversial remarks. He blamed Nirbhaya's lifestyle for the rape, claiming that he would have "burned his daughter" if she was out with a man at night.
Kushwaha, whose case led to the conviction of the nirbhaya rapists, said, “It's not about a girl from any particular community. There are many who are raped and killed every day. Support for rapists is a serious problem. There is a flaw in our country. "
She told TOI: “The atmosphere in the village is not conducive to the family's mental well-being. The upper-caste community, which includes the four defendants, is putting pressure on and organizing panchayats to defend the suspects arrested in the city's case. "
