NewDelhi, May 04: World renowned actress, model, and activist Emma Watson on Friday came into support of Deepika Singh Rajwat, the lawyer fighting the case of a minor girl of Kathua brutally raped and murdered by Hindu goons. The victim was reportedly held captive inside a temple and was sedated before being raped, tortured and murdered.
Watson on Friday shared an article authored by Sonia Mariam Thomas about “How the Kathua rape case lawyer is a force to reckon with” and wrote: “All power to Deepika Singh Rajawat.”
The British actor has been a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she has actively dedicated her efforts towards the empowerment of young women.
The article shared by Watson brings attention to Rajawat’s confident and professional demeanor as she is flanked by men who are not staring at her.
The case is ongoing in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court. Rajawat has been in defiance against her own colleagues in the Jammu Bar Association who allegedly warned her against taking up the case. (KNB)
