Ganga has asserted that he made a decision to quit to "save the image" of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, whose name was also being dragged amid the outrage against the rape and murder incident.

"We were sent (to Kathua) by the party. We went there on the party's instruction", he said, as reported by Times Now.

The BJP on Sunday demanded that the main opposition Congress party sack its state leader in Jammu and Kashmir after he suggested the police investigation was politically motivated. "I felt that if my sacrifice is required to protect party's image I would be glad to do it", he added.

"There were also many minor injury marks over her body". They had even threatened of communal clashes if she was buried there, according to the local All Tribal Coordination Committee (ATCC).

Muslim activists have demanded action against what they see as a crime against their community while some right-wing Hindu groups have argued that the accused were unfairly charged. "It will disturb the situation". We are the girl's well-wishers. He, however, also slammed the BJP State President Sat Sharma and asked him to step down, as on his directions, he alongwith Chander Prakash Ganga visited the village Rassana to pacify the villagers protesting and demanding CBI probe besides assuring them fair trial into the case.

"They came in two cars and after that two people have gone missing", he said. Their intention was not to hamper the investigation.

"The campaign calling them pro-rapist is untrue and without any basis, " Madhav said.

During the investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged he was the mastermind behind the kidnapping, rape, and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe. "Should we allow people to burn the state and die".

However, defending themselves of the accusation, Lal Singh said that he resigned on moral grounds. "Everybody is equal for me", he added. Sources said that Madhav had on Saturday said that these two vacancies will be filled by new faces from within the party.

Amid a political storm over the former ministers' remarks, the chief minister had reportedly told ally BJP that the duo's continuation in the government had become untenable. Another crime, in Uttar Pradesh, has captured the nation's attention, where a 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a BJP MLA.

Police in western Gujarat state said Sunday that a post-mortem examination of a young girl found dumped by a highway near Surat this month indicated she been raped and murdered. The accused then strangled and hit her on the head twice with a stone.
