The brutal gang-rape and murder of an 8-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua and a BJP MLA's alleged involvement in raping a teenager in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao appear to have caused an unprecedented shame for the saffron party across India. Atul Singh is now in judicial custody.

After filing of the case, the victim's father was booked by the police under the Arms Act on April 3 this year and kept under police custody on April 5. Sengar is facing several charges under the Indian Penal Code, including sections 363 (kidnapping), 366 (kidnapping to compel a woman to marry), 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Earlier in the day, Lal Singh also sought a CBI probe and said what is wrong with it.

Even though the heat on him continued to grow, Sengar continued to claim innocence.

Meanwhile, Sengar has been sent to a seven-day CBI custody on Saturday.

The survivor's uncle however accused the Unnao administration of conniving to save the legislator.

The second pertains to rioting, in which four locals have been booked, and the alleged killing of the victim's father in judicial custody. The court will monitor the investigation and asked the CBI to file a status report on May 2, the next date of hearing.

"Some goons of accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar are threatening villagers to keep quiet", he told news agency ANI. "'Jungle raaj" and "gunda raaj" actively aided and abetted by Adityanath government has become a pain for the people of the state and has conclusively exposed BJP's slogan of "Beti Bachao'", he added.

He had said that BJP would stand with Hindu Ekta Manch "to have the case referred to the CBI".

The BJP General Secretary said the development would had no bearing on the alliance of two ruling parties in the state. After that, it will be sent to the Chief Minister to the same.

Two BJP Ministers have quit the Mehbooba Mufti-led coalition Govt.in Jammu & Kashmir after they were directed by the party high-command to put in their papers for taking part in a rally supportive of the accused persons.

The senior BJP leader said the resignation of the ministers was to address the fears of not only its ally PDP and the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also the entire nation.
