Petition launched to find 'Justice for Sarah'

The mother of murdered Guernsey woman Sarah Groves has launched a petition urging the UK government to lodge a complaint about the way in which her daughter's trial has been handled.

Kate Groves says she wants the Indian authorities to treat the trial with respect and also outlines in the petition the aim to re-call all the main witnesses for cross-examination.

Thousands of people have signed the petition since it launched yesterday.

The body of 24-year-old Sarah was found on a houseboat in Kashmir in April 2013.

Dutchman Richard de Wit is on trial charged with her murder.

The trial in India to date has had 110 hearings. It has been plagued by delays and inconsistencies and has made little progress since it began.

The next hearing date is expected to take place on Wednesday 21st February.
