Mehbooba Mufti's New Delhi communication forces BJP Ministers to resign

According to reports, the two BJP ministers had gone to the place of agitation at Rasana in Kathua and had attended a meeting in support of the accused to demand a CBI probe in the matter.

"The BCI has chose to issue a direction and make an appeal to the Jammu High Court Bar Association and the Kathua Bar Association to call off their strike with immediate effect".

It would complete trial in 90 days and would be the first such court in state, they said.

United Nations (UN) chief Antonio Guterres heavily criticised the gang-rape and murder of a minor girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district and said hopefully culprits will be being punished very soon.

"During the protest, Hussain named all the accused in the case, including the local policemen investigating the crime".

Mr Mishra claimed that the BCI was told that the reason behind the lawyers' protests in Jammu was not to defend the accused but were instead focused against certain laws passed by the Jammu and Kashmir government. "Those in power shield raposts and take out marches to defend the brutal rape and killing of a child who was targeted simply because she was a Muslim", it added. "We all will have to work together to end this internal evil", he said.

A week later, her body was recovered from Rassana forest in Kathua district of Jammu on January 17.


Eight people, including four police personnel - a head constable, a sub-inspector and two special police officers - have been arrested in the case and charges filed against seven of them.

Police said they have taken cognizance of Hussain's complaint and started investigations.

Jammu: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Chander Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh, who have submitted their resignations as minister, on Saturday reiterated the demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the rape-and-murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir.

"I want justice for the 8-year-old at the earliest".

"The unflinching resolve for ensuring justice in this heinous crime will go a long way in restoring people's confidence in the institutions and reinforcing the sense of justice in J&K", she said.

More than 500 people gathered at the Parliament Street in Delhi with "Not in My Name" banners, demanding the immediate dismissal of the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for allegedly protecting Kuldeep Singh Sengar, his party's Unnao MLA, in the rape case.
