The Supreme Court today sought the response from the Jammu and Kashmir government on a plea by Talib Hussain, a key witness in the sensational Kathua gang rape-and-murder case, alleging custodial torture by the state police in an alleged fake rape case.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of senior advocate Indira Jaising that Hussain had been brutally tortured in police custody and judicial intervention was needed.

The bench asked the state government to file the response in a week and asked the lawyers to serve a copy of the petition on the advocate general of the state. The bench posted the matter for further hearing on 21st of this month.
