#JusticeforAsifa: Celebrities unite in outrage over Kathua rape case

In its 18-page chargesheet, the crime branch has unearthed a brazenly communal conspiracy by a former revenue officer Sanji Ram with the help of his son, nephew and police officers to make an example out of the eight-year-old nomadic girl's rape and murder which, according to the chargesheet, was meant to terrorise the Muslims community in Rasana and compel them to abandon their homes.

"We will never ever let another child suffer in this way".

The chief minister requested the chief justice for establishment of the special fast track court for the case, official sources said. "The Prime Minister also advised us to take appropriate action to send a right message to people", he said. Earlier in the day, the CM said proper procedures will be followed to ensure justice is served and the perpetrators are punished. So far, two of rightwing BJP ministers, who addressed the pro-rapist rally in Kathua have tendered their resignation and eight people involved in the heinous crime have been arrested by the Crime Branch of Jammu Kashmir Police.

A spokesman of the NC said that the Core Group discussed in detail the "insensitive handling" of the horrific Kathua rape and murder case by the state government and also expressed disappointment at the failure of Mehbooba to act against the two Cabinet Ministers, Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga "who "openly rallied support to divisive groups out to subvert the investigation and shield the accused". The way for her to express her displeasure is to sack them in Jammu not come & leak her alleged displeasure in Delhi", Omar wrote on his twitter handle. "There is no trouble in the alliance as such, we are in touch with Mehbooba Mufti Ji, she is of the view that on the ministers issue (Lal Singh and PC Ganga) BJP should take a stand".

Meanwhile, the ruling Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) has chose to hold a special meeting on Saturday to discuss the present status and the role of its alliance, the BJP, in the case.
