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