Notably, the students continued to protest and clash with the forces from past five days to seek capital punishment for culprits involved in Kathua incident.

The crime branch charge-sheet in the case states that the minor girl was abducted, starved, drugged and gangraped during her captivity at a temple in Rasana whose custodian, Sanji Ram, is believed to be mastermind of the case.

April. 19 (ANI): Only female accused in the Unnao rape case, Shashi Singh, has been kept in jail even though her police remand concluded on Thursday. Insisting that the incident was misreported by the media, they said the association withdrew its call for a strike on April 12.

Bangarmau legislator from Unnao district, Kuldeep Singh Sengar enjoyed "Y" category security cover which allowed him protection by a head constable, three constables and three body guards from the state police. The case came to light when the victim tried to immolate herself earlier this month.

Along with Atul, five other accused in the case were sent to police custody too.

Singh said he was thankful that Modi finally broke his silence last Friday over the rape cases and he said the "daughters of India" will get justice and the guilty won't be spared.

The allegations in both the cases were pointed out at BJP. At least 15 students were injured after the protests turned violent in Anantnag district of south Kashmir and police used tear gas and resorted to baton-charge to tame the agitators. The image of the BJP government took a hard knock. "What is the government afraid of?" he said. There could not have been a more severe reprimand of the Uttar Pradesh government.

Hitting out at the PM, Singh had said that Modi's failure to speak gave the people a chance to think that they could get away with anything would any action being taken against them.

"The Kathua rape and cover-up is the most heinous and unforgivable crime against a little girl". Like the Kathua victim, the Unnao survivor, a teenager allegedly raped by a #bjp MLA, is still awaiting justice.
