Kathua gangrape-murder case: BJP ministers, who took part in rally in support of accused, resign

Kathua gangrape: 2 BJP ministers, who tried to defend accused, resign from Mehbooba Mufti cabinet

Her body was recovered a week later on January 17 in the same area.

The BJP spokesperson accused the agitating lawyer in Jammu who opposed the charge-sheet being filed in the Kathua case as being close to Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad. The Bar Association of Jammu was also putting pressure on the woman lawyer representing the prosecution not to take up the case against the accused and it showed what kind of "hateful politics" was being practised, Lekhi said.

An eight-year-old girl was abducted and raped over and over before being horrendously murdered by a group of men in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua.

The charge sheet has revealed that the girl was held in a temple, drugged, gang-raped and later killed.

"It also expressed disappointment at the failure of the Chief Ministers to act against two cabinet ministers who openly rallied support to divisive groups out to subvert the investigation and shield the accused".

Following intense criticism over the two rape cases-Kathua and Unnao-in states ruled by it, the BJP said on Friday that rumours were spread that it had not condemned or acted swiftly in the cases. The Assam rape case had led to tension in the region as it was alleged that the accused were Bangladeshi migrants. "The Unnao case is over-10-month-old, while the Kathua case happened in January". "A class V student ..."

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday condemned Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua gangrape and murder case, which has prompted nationwide anger and outrage.

A Special Investigation Team, formed to probe the incident, has arrested eight people, including two special police officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destroying evidence. "The J&K police conducted a thorough investigation and have arrested the accused", BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said at a press conference.

Asked if the party was contemplating action against Sengar, she said the probe should be allowed to be concluded.
