Kathua rape-murder: Mehbooba Mufti seeks fast track court, sacks accused cops

The state government has also made a decision to terminate from service the cops accused in the case, they added.

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.

According to the reports, the state government has terminated the services of a sub-inspector, a head constable and two Special Police Officers (SPOs) accused in the crime.

"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. "Entire nation has come with her", he said. "It has strengthened my belief that Jammu serves as a model of inclusiveness & together the people of J&K inspire secular unity & righteousness", Mufti tweeted. The girl had disappeared from a spot near her house close to Rasana village on January 10.

The girl, belonging to a nomadic Muslim tribe in the district, was sedated time and again before being raped and killed.

Madhav, who has been the BJPs pointsman on scripting the agenda with the PDP, told reporters in Jammu that the resignations of the two ministers would be handed over to Mehbooba Mufti for further action and also admitted that the two ministers had displayed a lack of discretion by taking part in the rally.

Madhav, who stitched the alliance along with the PDP's Haseeb Drabu, has arrived in Jammu and Kashmir today and he will choose fresh faces from the BJP for the cabinet after the unceremonious exit of Ganga and Lal Singh. This step will ensure justice to the family of the eight-year-old deceased victim.

Earlier, Mufti had expressed her anger over the incident while saying that the state government will bring a new law to make the death penalty mandatory for those who rape minors. All the People's Democratic Party (PDP) leaders and legislators were summoned for the meeting.
