Mehbooba accepts resignation of BJP ministers

He says that does not want to let go of the legacy left by his father, and adds, "My father who was a staunch Congressman had played a key role in shaping the political career of S Nijalingappa, who was also a chief minister of the State".

Earlier, the two had resigned following accusations of attending a rally in support of the culprits in the Kathua gangrape and murder case.

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. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance". "Heartening to see the Supreme Court take cognisance of the attempted obstruction of justice by some lawyers in the brutal Kathua rape and murder case reminding us once again of the greatness of this nation", she wrote. While police initially did not arrest him, the eventual pressure resulted in the matter being handed over to CBI and Sengar being arrested.

Ms Mufti said she was in constant touch with BJP president Amit Shah, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and home minister Rajnath Singh.

Madhav said the two ministers stepped down because of the perception about them.

He said the investigations had been completed by the state Crime Branch and a charge sheet had been presented in the court. "That is also a confidence-building measure".

The girl's body was found in the forests on January 17.
