Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday forwarded the resignations of two BJP ministers - who had participated in a rally supporting people arrested for the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua - to the State Governor N N Vohra for acceptance. Mir added that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had expressed her displeasure with the BJP over the "conduct of two ministers".

The residence of a Supreme Court judge who is monitoring the corruption cases against ousted premier Nawaz Sharif came under firing by unknown gunmen today, triggering widespread condemnation in Pakistan.

The police arrested the caretaker after an interrogation, in which it was alleged that the mastermind of the crime against the girl from nomadic Muslim community was committed with an aim to terrify the community and drive them out of the village.

In a statement issued to KNS, Hakeem Yaseen has said that unholy alliance between PDP-BJP has proved much costlier to the people of the state as they get no time to look into the grievances of the people except tackling internal bickering to save their chair. While Chandra Prakash Ganga had termed the arrest of the men as "jungle raj", Lal Singh said, "Why such a hullabaloo on the death of this one girl. many such girls have died here".

When asked how these remarks amount to defusing communal tension, Kaul first maintained a strategic pause, then said, "I don't know what you are trying to make me say".

Within hours of taking over the investigation, the CBI brought Sengar, who had remained untouched by the state police, to its office in Lucknow, where he was questioned for almost 16 hours before being taken into custody on Saturday. Victim's mother has also alleged in the FIR filed in this case that Shashi singh was present at the spot when the incident happened. He also said the culprits should be brought to justice. Both the alliance partners - the BJP and the PDP - had separate legislature party meetings in Srinagar and Jammu on Saturday to discuss the situation arising out of the polarisation in the state over the rape-cum-murder of the girl.

After a massive public outrage over the inaction of the UP police, the case was handed over to the CBI on April 12.
