Mehbooba to ask for fast track court in Kathua rape

Mehbooba to ask for fast track court in Kathua rape

BJP leader Choudhary Lal Singh on Saturday defended his participation in a rally supporting the accused in the Kathua rape and killing case, saying that it was meant to defuse the situation and restore normalcy.

He said the resignation letters were now being forwarded to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

"There is no question of any pressure".

He said they had gone to Rasana as they had a responsibility to reach out to the people. They had never supported the accused.

"We will speak to our party legislature and also to the two ministers who have submitted their resignations", Madhav, who is also the BJP incharge for Jammu and Kashmir, said. The lawyers said they would put together the facts of the case in writing for the SC. "...but the real intention was to provide justice to the victim by fair and independent probe". "There was never any confusion on this principled stand of the party".

Earlier in the morning, the Bench had sought "something on record" from a lawyer for it to act suo motu, but it chose to crack the whip on being told about the obstruction on the day the charge-sheet was to be filed in a Kathua court.

Both the leaders also reiterated their demand for a CBI inquiry into the rape-and-murder of the eight-year-old girl in Kathua.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi, on Thursday midnight, carried out a candlelight march near New Delhi's India Gate, demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi to speak up on the Kathua and Unnao rape cases. They made the two ministers resign. "That is also a confidence-building measure".

She said: "I commend the manner in which the people. were unwavering in their support for a little girl".

Asked about reports of the chief minister writing to Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court for setting up of a fast track court, Akhtar said it is an administrative matter and he can not comment on that.

According to police charges, the minor from the nomad Bakerwal community was kidnapped on January 10.
