Two ministers of J&K BJP tenders resignation

The two BJP ministers, Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chander Parkash Ganga, who had joined the rallies in support of the accused in the gangrape and murder of a eight-year-old girl in Kathua district in Jammu and Kashmir, on Friday submitted their resignations to state party president Sat Sharma. A week later, her body was found in the same area, and medical examination pointed towards sexual assault.

Earlier in the day, Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also said that the BJP ministers who took part in a rally in support of the accused had no right to be in the cabinet.

The rape and murder has sent shockwaves in the country with politicians, celebrities, and sportspersons voicing their outrage over the incident.

Friday the 13th: good luck or bad omen?
In the novel, an unscrupulous broker takes advantage of the superstition to create a Wall Street panic on a Friday the 13th . Despite all of these, Italians regard this day as a lucky day and are filled with dread on Friday the 17th.

Expressing solidarity with the victim's family, the NC said that it will not cooperate with the state government "until and unless the two erring cabinet ministers are sacked for their unacceptable, abhorrent and criminal behaviour in the light of this tragedy and its politicization". The police had carried out a "very fair investigation" and arrested eight accused in the case, Lekhi said, while suggesting that the Congress might have had a role in the public protests against the probe.

An eight-year-old girl was abducted and raped over and over before being horrendously murdered by a group of men in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua. The Assam rape case had led to tension in the region as it was alleged that the accused were Bangladeshi migrants. She had accused Sengar, the MLA of Bangarmau, only a month later, the BJP spokesperson added. "The two BJP ministers were misled by a few people", BJP MP and spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi told the media. She said people who were raising the issue of two rapes cases in Unnao and Kathua were silent on this incident.
