Will ensure Kathua rapists are brought to justice: Ram Madhav

Kathua rape victim’s father moves Supreme Court for security seeks transfer of case from Jammu to Chandigarh

But both these ministers cleared that it was not their intention to interfere in the Crime Branch investigation. Ram Madhav, further insisted that there was no problem in the PDP-BJP alliance in the state.

He was referring to Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash Ganga, who had drawn criticism from all quarters over their participation in a rally in support of the accused in the Kathua rape and murder case. Apart from Ganga and Singh, the BJP's Kathua MLA, Rajeev Jasrotia, and Hiranagar MLA, Kuldeep Kumar, had attended the Hindu Ekta Manch protests.

Madhav denied that the two ministers had been asked to resign by the BJP high command following pressure from the PDP allies. Ram Madhav had 45-minute meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti before taking meetings of BJP Legislature Party comprising ministers, MLAs, MLCs and senior office bearers followed by exclusive meeting with 11 party ministers at the BJP headquarters at Trikuta Nagar.

Both the minister of the BJP tendered their resignations from the state cabinet posts on April 13. Should we not listen to them?

We must have "Samvedna", he stressed, adding, "the last person standing in line" is in sight of our government following the thoughts of Dr Ambedkar and Deendayal Upadhayay as "Antodaya".

We will not allow this jungle raj, under which they (police) are picking up people at will, to continue.

"There is no trouble in the BJP-PDP alliance".

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.

Madhav said the brutal rape and murder had "shaken the conscience" of the nation, and said parties, especially the Congress, "should not bring politics or religion into it".

"We are in touch with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who is of the view that the BJP should take a stand on these two ministers and the Prime Minister also advised us to take appropriate action to send a right message to people", Ram Madhav said. The accused then strangled and hit her on the head twice with a stone.
