Kathua Rape Case: Sense of Justice Reinforced in JK, Says Mehbooba
15 April 2018, 06:18 | Devin Moran
Kathua, Unnao culprits will not be spared: PM
"The charge that the two ministers were pro-rapist is absolutely wrong".
After the meeting, Public Works minister Naeem Akhtar "appreciated" the support of alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Asifa gangrape-and-murder case.
He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers.
The girl was attacked to scare away the nomadic Muslim community out of the village.
"The essence of India's democracy lies in its robust institutions and it has been once again established that these institutions have the grit to ensure justice with all sections of the society cutting across the divide", Mehbooba said while addressing a meeting of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) legislators and leaders here on Saturday.
Earlier, defending themselves, the two ministers had said that they were trying to ease the Hindus who had been protesting over the demographic mix in Jammu due to the settlement of Rohingyas and Bakarwal community members. "This is all your figment of imagination", Madhav said to a reporter's question.
Amid allegations that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was purposeful in his silence on the issue, Modi said that the incidents of rape in Kathua in J&K and Unnao in Uttar Pradesh had brought humiliation to the country.
"The resignation was to address the fears of not only its ally PDP and the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also the entire nation", said Mr. Madhav. Her body was found dumped in a forest near Rasana village seven days later.
She has also alleged that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Shashi Singh stood outside the room as a guard. "To safeguard the interest of Jammu, I will not hesitate to fight the government or meet the prime minister personally and reiterate the demand for a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-and-murder case which is the demand of lakhs of people", Ganga told reporters in Jammu on Saturday evening. "Sometimes a lack of discretion does not tantamount of any guilt...that has led to certain misconceptions about them (two ministers) also, so they decided they will quit as ministers", he responded, when asked about the two ministers having termed the action of the Crime Branch as "jungle raj" and warned police from arresting anyone. "In Jammu, the Congress leaders are casting aspersion over the probe and their senior leaders were creating law and order situation through Bar Council", he alleged.
