Ganga and Singh had hit out at the police for arresting "one or the other person at will" in connection with the rape and killing of the 8-year-old girl in January this year.

The inhuman act of brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old Asifa Bano in Jammu's tiny village Rasana of Kathua district has triggered religious breach in the district. The murder of the child, who belonged to a nomadic Muslim community, outraged the country after details were exposed in a police chargesheet last week.

According to the reports, the girl had taken some cows out to graze and was searching for a missing cow when she was abducted.

Unnao and Kathua rape cases have enraged the entire country with people from all walks of life and from all parts of India nearly unanimously calling out for jsutice for the victims and harsh punishment for those found guilty. She was heavily drugged, kept at a H\idu temple and was repeatedly raped by at least three men, over four days in mid-January. "We very much hope that the authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice so they can be held accountable for the murder of this young girl", Guterres' spokesperson Stephane Dujjaric told reporters. Lekhi must explain what took it so long for the two ministers to correct their mistakes if indeed they were misled.

A lawyer fighting for justice to Kathua rape and murder victim on Saturday alleged he had been attacked by goons in Udhampur town. "The essence of India's democracy lies in its robust institutions and it has been once again established that these institutions have the grit to ensure justice to all sections of society", Mehbooba said at a meeting of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legislators in Srinagar. Police said they had launched an investigation.

Her defence for the BJP ministers has also raised plenty of questions on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement terming the incidents of Kathua and Unnao 'an insult to all those who've sacrificed their lives for the country'. "We are all ashamed as a society, as a country", Modi said, speaking at the inauguration of the Ambedkar National Memorial here. On Friday evening, the PM finally broke his silence and assured that "no culprit will be spared, our daughters will definitely get justice".
