The nation has been on the boil over Kathua gang rape where an eight-year-old girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed in January.

However, several lawyers had stopped the police from registering cases against the accused in the case. According to the charge sheet, special police officers (SPO) Deepak Khajuria and Surender Verma, head constable Tilak Raj and sub-inspector Anand Dutta were involved in the ghastly crime. "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.

"We will discuss the agenda of meeting after the meeting", Kaul said.

Later, during investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged that he was the mastermind of kidnapping, rape and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe with an ulterior motive of terrifying the community and drive them out of the village.

As national consensus builds seeking exemplary punishment to the culprits, Mehbooba Mufti said: "I assure that I stand committed not just to ensure justice for Asifa but also seek exemplary punishment for those responsible for a crime whose brutal savagery has shamed humanity".

"I want justice for the 8-year-old at the earliest". All the People's Democratic Party (PDP) leaders and legislators were summoned for the meeting. "This govt will soon bring a law in the state under which people who rape minors will be given death penalty".

The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17.
