Mehbooba Mufti accepts resignations of BJP ministers who supported Kathua rape accused

The Bar Association Kathua (BAK) has withdrawn its offer to contest without charge the case of the eight people accused in the rape and murder case of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in the district. "It was sheer indiscretion on their part", he said.

Both Ganga and Singh had participated in a rally on March 1 after the crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police had arrested the nephew of a caretaker of a "Devisthan" (temple) in connection with the kidnapping and rape of the little girl.

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Apr. 15 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said that the unflinching resolve for ensuring justice in Kathua gang-rape and murder case would go a long way in restoring people's confidence in the institutions and reinforcing the sense of justice in the state.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, who had held consultations with legislators of the party in Jammu yesterday, had announced the resignations would be forwarded for further action thereby ending a simmering political crisis in the state. "Therefore, keeping in mind the perception and general situation, the two BJP leaders, after holding consultations with the prime minister and other senior leaders of the party, chose to submit their resignations". However, sources say that the two BJP ministers resigned after Prime Minister Narendra Modi refused to accept their reason for being a part of the rally.
