#Kathua: Congress urges Chief Minister to sack two BJP Ministers

Both of them had addressed the rally and called the police action against the rape accused as "jungle raj".

Two BJP ministers, who were at the centre of a storm over their participation in a rally in support of the accused in the Kathua rape and murder case, on Friday submitted their resignations to the party's state president Sat Sharma. PDP had demanded the resignation of the two ministers. The BJP had maintained that it was an "anti-human" and heinous crime and sought stringent action against the accused, Lekhi said, adding that the "rumour mill" was at work to claim that the saffron party was silent on the matter.

So far, eight persons, including mastermind Sanji Ram, have been charged with abduction, rape and murder of the eight-year-old girl in Kathua's Rasana village in January. Her body was recovered a week later on January 17 in the same area.

Lekhi said the accused in the rape cases needs to be punished.




She said Bar Association of Jammu president B S Slathia, who spearheaded the protest in Kathua, was Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's polling agent in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Dr Ambedkar National Memorial, PM Modi said crimes against women have shamed the country and the culprits won't be spared.

She also accused the opposition parties of doing "dangerous politics" over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases. 12 years old [was] raped and burnt with petroleum. The CBI has taken over the probe in the case.

He said that the entire Nation is eying on situation arising out of the brutal murder and rape of Asifa, feeling highly concerned about what is going on under PDP BJP rule in the State, unbelievable the Senior Cabinet Ministers were hell bent upon to give protection to the culprits under the garb of politics of polarization, he added.
