Gave resignation on moral grounds: BJP JandK minister

CBI also interrogated the six policemen of Unnao Police who were suspended in this case and were detained by the agency.

In Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, an eight-year-old Muslim nomadic girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, gangraped, tortured and killed.

According to the CBI FIR, Singh has been named as an accomplice of BJP lawmaker Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was arrested on Friday.

The accused in the Unnao rape case which shocked the country and once again brought people out on the streets has finally been arrested.

Sengar appeared in court the same day and was ordered detained for seven days. Speaking at a meeting with her PDP leaders, ministers and legislators, lasting over three hours, Mehbooba said, "The youth here have given enough indication of their anger and discontent over the past several years, even while they gave a chance for democracy to play itself out".

The victim's family had also alleged that the accused MLA's brother, Atul Singh Sengar, along with his companions, had also raped the girl and thrashed the victim's father on April 3 for refusing to withdraw the FIR over the same.

Meanwhile, Mehbooba Mufti, who also holds the Home portfolio, terminated the services of a sub-inspector, a head constable and two Special Police Officers (SPOs) accused of the crime.

BJP leaders Chandra Prakash Ganga and Chaudhary Lal Singh, resigned following accusations of attending the protest march. "They have been victimised", Balbir Singh, a spokesman for Choudhary Lal Singh, told Agence France-Presse. UP Congress spokesperson Ashok Singh said, "Going purely by numbers, we cannot field any party candidate (for the Council polls), but we can support the candidates from other like-minded parties".

The crimes have shaken India in a way reminiscent of the fatal gang-rape of a Delhi student on a bus in 2012 that made headlines around the world.

"The Modi government had given a call of "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao", (educate girls, save girls) but now the times have changed and people have started using the slogan, "BJP se beti bachao" (save girls from the BJP)", Chavan said in his speech. "Till now the victim family has not received justice", Dr. Rongpi said.
