Kathua rape case: PDP wants two BJP ministers out, may break alliance

Kathua rape-murder case: The body of the girl was recovered from Rassana forest on January 17, a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area. "It has strengthened my belief that Jammu serves as a model of inclusiveness and together the people of J-K inspire secular unity and righteousness", Mufti said in a tweet.

"PDP has done nothing to hold its coalition partner to its commitments, not only in regard to efforts to resolve the festering political problem in the state but also on other important issues which had lent a facade of justification to this ideologically divergent coalition under the garb of so-called "Agenda of Alliance", Tarigami said.

"There may be a change of portfolio of one minister who has also been playing the communal card to keep the Jammu region on boil over the arrest of culprits in Kathua case", sources said.

Sources said that in their resignation letters, sources said, Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga stated that they were offering resignations to the State party president as they felt that image of the party has been dented by the propaganda unleashed against them.




Mehbooba Mufti also chaired a meeting of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legislators and senior ministers in Srinagar.

The rape and murder of the nomadic Muslim Bakerwal community girl has created a controversy after lawyers in Jammu called for a shutdown on Wednesday, demanding the case be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Meanwhile, PDP leader Naeem Akhtar has demanded justice for the eight-year-old at the earliest.

The meeting will be attended by leaders of the party in the state's Srinagar. "This govt will soon bring a law in the state under which people who rape minors will be given death penalty". The girl had disappeared from a spot near her house close to Rasana village on January 10. Mehbooba assured the entire nation that she stands committed to ensuring justice in the Kathua rape and murder case.
