United Nations terms Kathua rape case 'horrific', hopes perpetrators are brought to justice

Speaking at the inauguration of the Ambedkar Memorial in New Delhi, he asserted that the "guilty" will not be spared and the government will make sure that the "daughters get justice".

Speaking to ANI, the BJP leader said there is no problem in the alliance and the party is talking to state Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

The "Hindu Ekta Manch", from which the BJP distanced itself, had also taken out a rally holding a tricolour to press for their demand.

The BJP ministers have tendered their resignations hours after opposition National Conference (NC) warned of launching a civil disobedience movement against the government if it failed to act against two the duo.

They attended the Hindu Ekta Manch rally on 4 March, almost two months after the 8-year-old child was brutalised.

"The lesson for them is allow the law to take its own course before opening your mouth", Lekhi said.

Actor-Director Farhan Akhtar tweeted, "Imagine what goes through the mind of an 8 yr old as she is drugged, held captive, gang raped over days and then murdered".

Jammu will take out candle march procession on Saturday in memory of Kathua rape and murder case victim from District Court Complex Janipur to Ambphala at 6 pm. The BJP ministers who allegedly were part of a rally to support the rapists have since been asked to resign. "It was when women journalists started to write full stories on these women with pictures and details about their lives that people realised that what was happening was completely wrong", Singh said. "There was never any confusion on this principled stand of the party".

"The type of incidents that have been talked about in the last two days have shamed us as a nation and as a society".

Meanwhile, the lawyers, who have been demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in the case, had earlier stopped the police from filing charge-sheets against the accused.

The horrific gang-rape and murder of eight-year-old Asifa Bano has sparked an outrage all over the country, once again reminding us that women's safety continues to be a distant dream in India. Former chief minister Omar Abdullah also told CM Mehbooba Mufti to sack the two ministers the way she sacked former Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu, reported FreepressKashmir.
