Family of the victim and I the council for the victim are satisfied with the ongoing trial of the case in the Pathankote court.” Saying that the support extended to her struggle by former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti is laudable, Rajawat said “Mehbooba ji personally encouraged me to continue the fight for justice to the victim despite threats. She as chief minister offered me protective residence in Jammu.”
