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

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

Kathua: In yet another unprecedented move, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, wrote to the Chief Justice of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Saturday, requesting to set up of a special fast track court to try the gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua. Mir added that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had expressed her displeasure with the BJP over the "conduct of two ministers". In the audio conversation with gangster Lekhraj Yadav - charged in over 60 cases including abduction, robbery and murder - Singh allegedly advised him to strike a deal with the local BJP leaders.

Raghu, who has chose to contest as an independent, had unsuccessfully contested the assembly elections from Krishnaraja constituency in 2013 on BSR Congress Party's ticket.

Singh is believed to have led the victim to Sengar's residence, where the alleged crime took place.

She told a Press conference that if the Modi government were so committed towards Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, it would not have finished the SC-ST sub-plan introduced in the Budget during Indira Gandhi era.

She also claimed that her family was being threatened after they tried to file an FIR. On Saturday, the party chose to forward them to the CM to diffuse crisis in the ruling BJP-PDP coalition.

Fully aware of the arduous task ahead, especially when sons of political heavyweights are most likely to contest the elections on Congress and BJP tickets respectively, Raghu says, "An estimated 10% to 15% of voters want new faces and this is enough to keep me confident of my chances". "People can see what kind of politics you (Gandhi) are doing". However, sources said the final decision on cabinet reshuffle could be taken only after a report was submitted to Shah.

Yadav desperately asks, "Will they kill of us? CBI, in contrast, is an investigating body that looks like a caged parrot".

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. He asked, "What they did it in the case of the two girls from Shopian Asiya and Nelofar in 2009". The CBI has registered three cases against Sengar in regard to the crime he allegedly committed previous year.
