Amid outrage over Kathua and Unnao rapes, Modi promises complete justice

Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi

PTI, SRINAGAR/JAMMU: Two controversial BJP ministers, who participated in a rally in support of the people arrested for the rape-cum-murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Kathua, today exited from the PDP-BJP alliance government in Jammu and Kashmir, ending a simmering political crisis in the state. The case came into the spotlight after she attempted self-immolation in front of Uttar Pradesh chief minister YogiAdityanath's residence onApril 8.

The Chief Minister forwarded the resignation of the two ministers to the state Governor.

The Kathua girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17.

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti accepted the resignations of two BJP ministers who supported the people arrested in connection with the Kathua rape case. "We have made a request and issued a direction to them to convene an extra-ordinary meeting tomorrow to decide on the issue", he said.

On Sunday, the horrific gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl child in Jammu is being equated with the gruesome sexual assault and killing in a Delhi bus a few years ago along with other ghastly crimes committed across the country against women including minors. The protesters demanded immediate dismissal of the Yogi Adityanath government in UP for allegedly shielding his party legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar, accused of raping the girl in Unnao.

He said it was the party high command which sent them to Kathua to control the situation.

Because of injuries and trades, Lue has been forced to shuffle his lineups all season, and the postseason will be no different. In four meetings with the Celts during the regular season, the Greek Freak averaged 33.5 points, 10.8 rebounds and 5 assists.


The Unnao and Kathua rape cases show that BJP has place for rapists and condones rapists.

Madhav accused the Congress party of playing double standards.

"Since the case is fixed on April 19 and the team is going on April 20, we will seek two or three days adjournment in the Supreme Court", Mishra said.

On Saturday, the party accepted their resignations but said their unwise move to go and pacify people rallying for suspects of rape and murder of a minor was "mistaken for trying to shield the accused".

In the video, which was played during a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, Mir is purportedly telling reporters that the locals believed the investigation was motivated and that the main culprits were still at large.
