Mehbooba Mufti requests J&K High Court to fast track Kathua rape case

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted that ‘proper procedures are being followed’ and investigation will be fast-tracked in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua

Madhav, who stitched the alliance along with the PDP's Haseeb Drabu, has arrived in Jammu and Kashmir today and he will choose fresh faces from the BJP for the cabinet after the unceremonious exit of Ganga and Lal Singh.

The BJP and the PDP held separate meetings of MLAs.

Kathua MLA Rajiv Jasrotia has been missing since two days after being questioned about the rape and murder of the eight-year-old girl in his constituency in Jammu and Kashmir. Political, social, trade and tourist organizations in Jammu have been protesting against the settlement of Rohingya Muslims, whom they perceive as a security threat, in the region and demanding their deportation.

The Chief Minister also wrote to the Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, seeking a fast track court to conclude within 90 days the trial in the case that has caused a nation-wide outrage, official sources said here.

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir), 13 April (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday demanded the JandK Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to take action against Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) ministers, who are supporting Kathua rape culprits.

BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav, who flew in to Jammu on Saturday morning, had a meeting with party leaders as well as legislators after which a decision to hand over the resignations of ministers Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga to the chief minister was taken. The state government has also chose to terminate from service the cops accused in the case, they added.

She says she can not preside over civilian killings in the valley and remain silent.

Earlier, after meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Nath Singh, Mufti expressed its concern over the conduct of both the BJP ministers over the Kathua rape case.

On the plea for a CBI probe saying the investigations have been completed in three months and a charge sheet has been submitted in the court. "We very much hope that the authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice so they can be held accountable for the murder of this young girl", Guterres' spokesperson Stephane Dujjaric said reporters at his daily press briefing. "The ministers accused the J&K Police of carrying out a biased investigation which vitiated the atmosphere in Jammu and emboldened the people to hit the streets", a senior PDP leader told Firstpost.

Madhav maintained that the two BJP leaders had gone to Kathua in March to pacify the public and also to look into the matter of the gruesome crime.
