The ministers had last month attended a rally in Hiranagar area of Kathua district organised by Hindu Ekta Munch in favour of the seven people accused in the rape and subsequent murder of an eight-year-old girl.

"Now the party legislators are meeting tomorrow to decide the fate of both the ministers", BJP state general secretary Ashok Koul said over the phone. Yesterday, on April 13, Two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ministers who shielded the accused men in the Kathua rape case resigned from their post after coalition partner puts its pressure on saffron party. "Abdul Gani Kohli (minister) was sent to the house of the victim, so that an ugly situation was not created", Lal told reporters.

At an event to inaugurate the B.R. Ambedkar memorial in the national capital, Modi said, "I want to assure the nation that no criminal will be spared". Among the eight accused arrested in the Kathua rape case are police officers and a retired government official.

The attack took place in January, but the details were only released by police this week.

He said they had gone to Rasana as they had a responsibility to reach out to the people. They did the right thing.

The case relates to an 8-year old girl of a nomadic Muslim tribe gang-raped and killed in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir in January. Should we not listen to them?

However, the fate of the PDP-BJP alliance in the state, which is already on shaky ground, is still not clear as Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is scheduled to hold a high-level meeting on Saturday to decide the future of the alliance, they said.

Earlier in the morning, the Bench had sought "something on record" from a lawyer for it to act suo motu, but it chose to crack the whip on being told about the obstruction on the day the charge-sheet was to be filed in a Kathua court.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Crime Branch was formed to probe the incident.

Asifa Bano was kidnapped and allegedly taken to a temple in Kathua, drugged, gangraped over two days, strangled and her body was dumped in a forest.
