Gave resignation on moral grounds: BJP J&K minister

BJP accepts resignation of ministers, Mehbooba to take final call

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has accepted the resignations of two BJP ministers, who had participated in a rally in support of the people arrested in connection with the rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Kathua, officials said.

Meanwhile, the harassment of the kin of the rape victim continues. Unconfirmed sources have alleged that the goons are videotaping the activities of the members of the family.

With filing of nominations for Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council polls coming to a close tomorrow, the ruling BJP today sounded confident of bagging 11 out of 13 seats going to polls on April 26.

Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga and Forest Minister Lal Singh had addressed a rally in support of the accused by a group called the Hindu Ekta Manch in March. The second FIR has been filed for rioting, and four locals have been booked. The police have later added the murder charges. The victim's father was tortured by the culprits who later give way to the torment. The post-mortem of the victim's father reveals that he has been severely tortured and died due to multiple internal injuries.

Singh also demanded for a CBI investigation into the heinous crime, saying that only an investigation will bring out the truth to the fore front.

He alleged that the Chief Minister was adamant on not transferring the case to the CBI on the directions of the separatists only for the vote bank. Sengar was taken into custody after intense questioning for 16 hours by a CBI team at its office on Naval Kishore Road in Lucknow.

An angry Bench remarked: "The approach of the learned Advocate General is not only appalling but shocks the conscience of the Court in the backdrop of the instant case". It also directed the CBI to provide a status report to the court by May 2. Congress leaders slammed the Modi government for the "failure" of law and order in the country. This raises doubts over the claims made by victim's family regarding her age at the time of incident and the sections of POCSO invoked against the accused. The girl, after failing to get justice for about a year, tried to immolate herself in front of chief minister Adityanatah's residence.
