Hundreds join in as Congress, AAP protest Kathua, Unnao rapes

In the meantime, two BJP Ministers in J&K Cabinet - Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga and Forests Minister Lal Singh - have quit their respective posts after a huge controversy erupted over their participation in a rally supportive of the accused and arrested persons.

Veteran lawyer Deepika Rajawat, who is appearing in the Jammu & Kashmir High Court on behalf of the Kathua rape-murder victim's family, alleged threat to her life from the supporters of the accused.

The BJP on Sunday demanded the sacking of Jammu and Kashmir Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir, claiming that he was seen in a video terming the police probe in the Kathua rape-and-murder case motivated and defending the public protests against it.

Both the ministers had earlier said that they had been sent by the party to Kathua to understand the ground situation.

Mufti welcomed the move but said the Centre should "wake up to the Kashmir cauldron".

Lee Chong Wei spoke of the Commonwealth Games with finality and the 2020 Olympic Games with a tentative shake of the head. Sriakanth on Thursday replaced Denamark's Viktor Axelsen to achieve the No.1 spot in the latest BWF World Rankings.

"It was after my statement, the main accused and mastermind, Sanji Ram, and others were arrested". The acts of rape and murder of women are a blot on our democracy and if we can't give justice to that 17-year-old girl or to the deceased eight-year-old girl then we are not a democratic and republic country and our treatment of women is not much different from other third world countries.

MLA Langate said, "Mehbooba Mufti she should have taken action against the ministers once the issue surfaced, and there is no role of PDP in sacking the two ministers".

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud was also critical of the Jammu High Court Bar Association, which had passed a resolution not to attend the courts saying "it is the duty of the bar association as a collective body and they can not obstruct the process of law". The body of the girl was recovered from the Rassana forest in January, a week after she went missing from the area while grazing horses.

After facing flak for his silence, PM Narendra Modi on Friday said, "The incidents of the recent days are a challenge to social justice".

He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits. "I was threatened yesterday with a message that "we will not forgive you", Rajawat said. Certainly, there was a lack of discretion. The chargesheet also revealed that before her head was bashed with a stone, one of the accused- a police officer- had asked the killer to wait so he could rape the child one last time. "The directive.must be withdrawn", Madav said while replying to a question about the demographic changes in Jammu due to settlement of Rohingya refugees and Tribals on encroached state lands in Jammu city, which are two major concerns of minority Dogras of Jammu.
