Pleading anonymity reliable sources in BJP told KNB that Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga were forced to tender the resignations by BJP high command over their alleged involvement in support of the Kathua Rape and Murder case accused.

In an earlier tweet she also said it was comforting to see the Supreme Court pull up the Jammu bar association for blocking justice in the rape and murder case of minor girl.

United Nations (UN) chief Antonio Guterres heavily criticised the gang-rape and murder of a minor girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district and said hopefully culprits will be being punished very soon. So far, 8 persons have been accused in the case. "They never said anything against us", she said.

Jammu: The Jammu Bar Association on Saturday sought compensation and security for the Kathua rape and murder victim's family.

The outraged against rape cases hit the streets on Sunday when hundreds of protesters gathered at Parliament Street in New Delhi and Carter Road, Bandra in Mumbai.

Amid loud slogans against the BJP and Prime Minister Modi during the march, Rahul said the women of the country are afraid to go out today and the government must ensure their safety.

Despite receiving open threats, the mother of 5-year-old daughter hasn't given up and her focus is reportedly on seeking justice for Asifa and her family.

The girl was adopted by the woman's brother and his wife in Rasana hamlet of Kathua district when she was a year old.

According to the reports, the girl had taken some cows out to graze and was searching for a missing cow when she was abducted.

On January 23, the government had handed over the case to the crime branch of the state police which formed a Special Investigation Team and arrested eight people including two Special Police Officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destruction of evidence. "When our policemen are killed fighting militants in Kashmir, the same people call them (police personnel) patriots, but when our policemen investigate cases where the identity of the perpetrators does not suit them, and they want to protect the accused, J&K Police becomes untrustworthy overnight". "But why Ajay Singh Bisht (Yogi Adityanath), the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, was not removed?" he asked. "As a society and as a country we should feel ashamed".
