Kathua rape case: CM Mehbooba Mufti demands fast-track court”

Asserting that the law will not be obstructed by the irresponsible actions and statements of a group of people, the Chief Minister said that proper procedures are being followed and justice will be delivered in Asifa rape and murder case.

In a big step by the Jammu and Kashmir government, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is pushing for a fast-track court to be set up to expedite the Kathua rape and murder case and ensure speedy justice to the family of the 8-year-old victim.

The Jammu and Kashmir ruling coalition partners, BJP and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), closed ranks on Saturday on the Kathua rape-and-murder case, with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti thanking "the country's political leadership". The gory details of the heinous crime surfaced following the filing of charges. Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has said that the state government will bring stringent new law to make death penalty mandatory for those who rape minors. The state government also chose to terminate from service the policemen accused in the Kathua rape case under Section 126-C and Article 311.

Two BJP ministers - Industries and Commerce Minister Chander Parkash Ganga and Forests Minister Choudhary Lal Singh - resigned from the J&K government on Friday after facing criticism for taking part in a rally against the police probe in the case.

The BJP today chose to forward the resignation letters of the ministers - Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - to the Chief Minister. She has also decided to make a new law which will make death penalty mandatory for raping of any minor in J&K.

The police's crime branch has filed a chargesheet against eight accused, three of whom allegedly drugged the girl and repeatedly raped her before murdering her.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav flew to Jammu this morning and held consultations with senior party leaders as well as MLAs and MLCs to discuss the situation in the state. He said that the ministers resigned in order to address the fears of not only the PDP, but also the state and the nation.
