Kathua rape and murder: BJP ministers exit Jammu and Kashmir government

BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested on Friday

Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - had submitted their resignations to state BJP chief Sat Sharma on Friday. When an organisation organised a protest against the initial investigations into the case, two BJP ministers in the J&K cabinet joined in.

"They have resigned because of the way the entire thing has been presented across the country".

He said that disciplinary action has been taken against other BJP office-bearers and activists who supported the Hindu Ekta Manch that was spearheading an agitation against the investigation by the crime branch of the state police.

The authenticity of the video could not be independently verified by PTI.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Choudhary Lal Singh on Saturday defended his participation in a rally supporting the accused in the Kathua rape and killing case, saying that it was meant to defuse the situation and restore normalcy.

Ram Madhav, who is in-charge of party affairs in J-K, said that the two ministers made it clear that they never meant to create hurdles in the investigations of the rape-murder of Kathua girl.

Asked about the demand for a CBI probe into the incident, the BJP leader said, "The police has completed the probe and now it is in the court of law".

The BJP leader also accused the opposition of politicising the rape of girls in Kathua and Unnao. "You should immediately sack him (Mir)", Javadekar said.

"Madhav said", There was some amount of indiscretion on the part of our two ministers.

PDP came out with a strong statement blaming the Centre and "hawkish and communal" elements in the BJP for failing the goal of the alliance between the two parties in the state. Before she was strangled and hit twice with a heavy rock for good measure, one of the men stopped the killer to rape her one last time, the police said.

He accused the Congress party of playing double standards. Khera said Gundurao was a father of two and like everybody else he was "deeply disturbed by what is happening to daughters in the country". "Because of Mir sahab's demand that there was some progress, action in the case", Khera told reporters here.

The police officer then advised the criminal that if he wanted to save himself, he should "manage" local BJP leaders.

Meanwhile, security at the Gandhi Maidan was ginned up with dozens of security cameras put in place for today's rally as more than 5000 security guards kept an eye on all activities from strategic locations.

She also tweeted some Hindi couplets, which translated into English mean that "we have risked our lives, have become our own enemies; by respecting his wish, we have made a mockery of ourselves".
