'Jammu Bar's Bandh exposes shameful duplicity of PDP-BJP govt'

Kathua rape case PDP wants two BJP ministers out may break alliance

Following the concerns on global level over Kathua incident and CM Mehbooba's threatening communication to break alliance, the right-wing party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Jammu based cabinet ministers were forced to tender resignations, a party source in New Delhi told Kashmir News Bureau.

The Chief Minister also wrote to the Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, seeking a fast track court to conclude within 90 days the trial in the case that has caused a nation-wide outrage, official sources said here.

Bhartiya Janta Party today accepted the resignation of its two ministers Chowdary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga.

The charge sheet has revealed some chilling details about how the girl was allegedly kidnapped, drugged, raped inside a place of worship before being killed.

He was responding to tweets by a journalist from a TV channel in which she had said that during her meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Mehbooba had expressed displeasure over the BJP ministers' actions with regard to the case.

Later, during investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged that he was the mastermind of kidnapping, rape and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe with an ulterior motive of terrifying the community and drive them out of the village.

"The unflinching resolve for ensuring justice in this heinous crime will go a long way in restoring people's confidence in the institutions and reinforcing the sense of justice in J&K", she said.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat Conference on Thursday said that while Jammu Bar Association "with active support of members of INC and Panthers Party" were enforcing Bandh and taking out rallies in favour of rapists and murderers of minor Asifa, the state administration and police were acting like mute spectators.

"Certain amount of discretion should have been maintained".

She also called for exemplary punishment for those responsible for the crime.
