Jammu : Advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat has been booked for hurting religious sentiments of a community, Jammu and Kashmir Police reportedly confirm on Monday.

The advocate came into limelight in January 2018 representing the family of the 8-year old tribal Bakarwal (Goatherd) girl, who had been raped and later murdered in the Rasana village in Jammu's Kathua district.

The Jammu based advocate has been booked under sections 295A and 505 (b) (2) of the IPC for creating enmity and hatred between different classes of people.
