Pak Christian 'blasphemy' girl 'needs armoured vehicle, bodyguards for protection': Lawyer

London, Sat, 08 Sep 2012 ANI

London, Sept 8 (ANI): Rimsha Masih, the minor Pakistani Christian girl accused of blasphemy, will require an armoured vehicle and a substantial number of bodyguards to protect her, a lawyer representing her has said.

"The prime concern of the defence team is her safety and her life," said Raja Ikram, one of the lead defence lawyers in a case.

"She is at grave risk in the sense that the people who managed this whole drama and fabricated the evidence against her most certainly wish her harm," the lawyer said.

In addition to security concerns more time is needed to arrange a surety bond of more than 6,000 dollars, he added.

Masih, the 14-year-old who is believed to suffering from Down's Syndrome, was granted bail on Friday, after she was jailed for desecrating the Koran, the Guardian reports.

According to the paper, Rimsha became the first person ever accused of blasphemy to win bail.

Earlier this week, over two weeks after Rimsha was first arrested, new witnesses came forward alleging she had been framed by the head of the local mosque in the impoverished neighbourhood where a Christian minority live. (ANI)
