Unnao rape victim's family alleges harassment by BJP MLA's goons

Kathua case BJP demands action against Jammu and Kashmir Cong chief

An eight-year-old girl in Kathua, belonging to a nomadic Muslim tribe in the district, was sedated time and again before being raped and killed.

The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) while confirming the resignation of two ministers, Chowdary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga, said that the party legislature meeting will decide the fate of both the ministers tomorrow.

A girl, speaking to APN News, said, "The incidents of Unnao and Jammu and Kashmir - the rape cases there - have shocked us".

The latest development came a day after BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav said the motive of its ministers in joining the Hindu Ekta Manch protest in support of the Kathua accused was to "dispel misgivings about investigations and reassure people that there will be no harassment of any innocent".

While the investigations are indeed underway, the future of PDP-BJP alliance stands on shaky grounds. "During communication, the CM told BJP leadership that when I can sack Haseeb Drabu over public outrage, what makes you to stop disqualify the Lal Singh and Ganga involved in lending helping hand to accused", the source informed.

Amid rumours that the PDP may seriously discuss the withdrawal of the party from the coalition, Chief Minister and party president Mehbooba Mufti held a meeting with all PDP lawmakers and party leaders in Srinagar.


He said it was not only in other states that rape cases have gone up.

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case. Sometimes a lack of discretion does not tantamount of any guilt.that has led to certain misconceptions about them (two ministers) also, so they decided they will quit as ministers", he had responded, when asked about the two ministers having termed the action of the crime branch as "jungle raj" and warned police from arresting anyone.

Deputed at Unnao district hospital, Dr SK Johri, who conducted the age determination test on the victim said that she was brought to him on June 22, 2017 by constable Ruby Singh with report number 996/17. I see that as a confidence-building measure. PM Narendra Modi, charged for being silent on the issue, broke his silence on the two cases on Friday when he said justice for the victims would be delivered.

Scenes last week of lawyers trying to stop police from entering court to file charges against the accused sparked nationwide revulsion. She was abducted on January 10 and was later strangled to death on January 14.

Her attackers, which included temple official and policemen, drugged and gang-raped her over days before finally killing her and dumping her body in a forest nearby, seven days later.
