Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti appreciates people for dismissing 'communal forces'

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted that ‘proper procedures are being followed’ and investigation will be fast-tracked in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua

In yet another unprecedented move, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has requested the J&K HC Chief Justice for the establishment of a special fast-track court to expedite the Kathua rape and murder case.

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. "We have to keep this civilization alive", she said. The chief minister also commended the people of Jammu for having discounted the divisive agenda of the "rabid fringe elements" and coming out with unwavering support for the girl.

Two BJP ministers who had attended a rally in support of the accused persons in Kathua, yesterday submitted their resignations to party's state president Sat Sharma.

The rape and killing of the girl, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community, has become a national issue.

Madhav, who stitched the alliance along with the PDP's Haseeb Drabu, has arrived in Jammu and Kashmir today and he will choose fresh faces from the BJP for the cabinet after the unceremonious exit of Ganga and Lal Singh.

Mehbooba Mufti is in Srinagar to meet party legislators and senior ministers to discuss the future course of action on the case.

"We thank people of entire country including the intelligentsia and civil society for standing with the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the case", Akhtar said.

Pressure has been mounting on Mehbooba Mufti to end alliance with the BJP after two BJP leaders were accused of defending Kathua rapists. She taken to a temple in Rasana village in Kathua district. Expressing her concerns over the brutal rape and murder, Mufti took to Twitter earlier on Friday and assured that her government will ensure that no other child will ever face such brutality and atrocity.

"What rubbish! They are HER ministers, not the Hon (ourable) PM's".

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