India’s top court has ruled that the trial of eight men accused of the rape, torture and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl must be moved out of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The victim’s family had petitioned the court, asking for the trial to be moved out of the state. It will now be heard in the northern state of Punjab.
The case made headlines in India after right-wing groups and lawyers protested over the arrest of the eight Hindu men.
All of them have pleaded not guilty.
