BJP ministers' resignations being sent to J&K CM: Ram Madhav

Kathua Rape Case: After Modi Breaks His Silence, Two BJP J&K Ministers Quit

16 hrs of grilling later, BJP MLA Sengar arrested

The victim had attempted self-immolation near Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's official residence on Sunday in protest against the failure of the police to act against the lawmaker but was prevented by some alert cops.

BJP's J&K president Sat Sharma said that while taking part in the rally could have been the personal decision of the two concerned Ministers, he was of the opinion that they should have refrained from doing so.

He alleged that the Chief Minister was adamant on not transferring the case to the CBI on the directions of the separatists only for the vote bank.

"There is no question of any pressure".

While Singh had said, "The BJP government is for everyone and I assure you that case will be referred to the impartial agency".

The BJP General Secretary said the development would have no bearing on the alliance as both the parties were working in coordination.

Dunford said the research center was used for development, production and testing of chemical and biological warfare technology. In a statement later on Saturday morning in London, May said the United Kingdom was "confident of its success".

BJP has been fighting fire since the two rape cases came to light.

The CBI is now expectedly to take the accused to Unnao for further investigation. The two ministers were present in the rally in support of the rape-accused where the tricolour was also waved.

Madhav according to the reports has arrived in Jammu today to chair a party legislature meet at the party headquarters. "Therefore, keeping in mind the perception and general situation, the two BJP leaders, after holding consultations with the prime minister and other senior leaders of the party, chose to submit their resignations".

The survivor later told the media that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement on Friday saying that the guilty will be brought to book was very reassuring and that she now hoped that justice will be done in her case. Allegations on them being pro-rapists aren't true. I see that as a confidence-building measure.

A Special Investigation Team of Crime Branch, formed to probe the incident, has arrested eight people, including two special police officers (SPOs) and a head constable and a sub-inspector, who were charged with destroying evidence.

The rape victim had disappeared from a spot near her house in Kathua on January 10 and a week later, her body was found in the same area. She was taken to a temple in Rasana village in Kathua district. She said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state and urged "New Delhi to wake up to the Kashmir cauldron".
