Kathua rape case: Mehbooba Mufti seeks fast track court, sacks accused cops

"A meeting has been called to discuss their resignations in the party legislature tomorrow (Saturday)", Kaul said.

Although Sharma claimed that Lal Singh and Ganga quit on their own, sources said the two were recalled at the instance of PM Narendra Modi, who held that being ministers, they should not have joined the attack on J&K police for arresting those accused of raping and killing an eight-year-old. Even when the pressure of the nationwide outrage got too hot to handle, the UP police chose to just detain him for questioning rather than arrest him as it should have done. However, there was some amount of indiscretion on the part of the ministers for which they had to resign, he said.

Reacting to Congress leader Dinesh Gundurao's comment that Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath should be beaten with slippers, Javadekar said the BJP condemned such remarks and claimed that the opposition party was making provocative statements and trying to incite violence as it was afraid of losing the May 12 Karnakata Assembly polls. He said, "We appreciate our alliance partner which helped us in this case".

"They have resigned because of the way the entire thing has been presented across the country". I see that as a confidence-building measure.

Madhav, who was the pointsman for the BJP in forging the alliance with PDP, said the two ministers had been sent to Kathua to pacify the people who were agitated after the incident.

Taking a jibe at Congress President Rahul Gandhi's midnight march at India Gate, Lekhi said: "Why there were no candlelight vigils for other rape victims?" A week later, her body was found in woods near her village.

He ruled out a CBI inquiry into the incident and expressed satisfaction with the crime branch's probe. The agency arrested Sengar, the prime accused in the case, last night after 16 hours of questioning at its office in Lucknow. The Allahabad High Court slammed the state government, ordered arrest of all accused in the case and said it would monitor the probe. "It is for the court to decide".

Ms Mufti's People's Democratic Party and the BJP had nearly reached a breaking point after the two BJP leaders participated in a rally on March 1 to protest against the Crime Branch. "There was never any confusion on this principled stand of the party".

The police officer then advised the criminal that if he wanted to save himself, he should "manage" local BJP leaders.

As the spine chilling details of the Kathua gang rape case make it to the mainstream media, comparisons are inevitably being drawn with the horrific Nibhaya gang rape case of Delhi in 2012. "It is a simple thing if the investigation is motivated to hush up the case, the questions will arise", Mir said in one video.
