The chargesheet which was filed on Monday reveal chilling details of the crime.

"She (Mufti) told the PM that Lal Singh and CP Ganga were creating hurdles in the process of delivering justice to the girl but he assured her that action will be taken within few days. And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance", he said.

As national consensus builds seeking exemplary punishment to the culprits, Mehbooba Mufti said: "I assure that I stand committed not just to ensure justice for Asifa but also seek exemplary punishment for those responsible for a crime whose brutal savagery has shamed humanity". The girl had disappeared from a spot near her house close to Rasana village on January 10.

Her attackers, which included temple official and policemen, drugged and gang raped her over days before finally killing her and dumping her body in a forest nearby, seven days later.

The rape and murder of the nomadic Muslim Bakerwal community girl has created a controversy after lawyers in Jammu called for a shutdown on Wednesday, demanding the case be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
