"Sometimes lack of discretion does not tantamount of any guilt...that has led to certain misconceptions about them (two ministers) also, so they decided they will quit as ministers", Madhav responded when he was asked about a pointed question that the two ministers had termed the action of the crime branch as "jungle raj" and warned police from arresting anyone. This special fast track court which would be the first in the state is expected to complete the trial in ninety days.

CM Mufti is scheduled to chair a high-level meeting of her party on Saturday to decide the future of alliance with BJP.

United Nations (UN) chief Antonio Guterres condemned the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district and has expressed hope of perpetrators being punished. Sources said that Sanji Ram tried to hush up the case by paying Rs 4 lakh of the Rs 5 lakh deal with sub-Inspector at police station Hiranagar, Anand Dutta, who was investigating the case before it was handed over to the crime branch. "I commend the manner in which the people of Jammu dismissed communal forces and were unwavering in their support for a little girl".

Putin and Macron instructed their foreign and defense ministers to maintain close contact to "de-escalate the situation", the Kremlin said.

"She (Mufti) told the PM that Lal Singh and CP Ganga were creating hurdles in the process of delivering justice to the girl but he assured her that action will be taken within few days. It has strengthened my belief that Jammu serves as a model of inclusiveness & together the people of J&K inspire secular unity & righteousness", Mufti tweeted.

Meanwhile, Talib Hussain, the lawyer who fought the case, has lodged a complaint with the police that he was attacked in Udhampur last night. It has also demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe.

He said he can not remain quiet just because he is in the government and that the PDP will have to "take one last bow and apologise to people for having unknowingly pushed them into something they did not deserve".

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Saturday ridiculed the statement of BJP national secretary Ram Madhav that there was "no threat" to PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir and said: "They (PDP) are partners in crime with BJP and Kashmiris are paying with their blood".

After the meeting, Public Works minister Naeem Akhtar "appreciated" the support of alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Asifa gangrape-and-murder case.

A top PDP leader told IANS after the meeting ended: "We also appeal the nation across political affiliations to own Kashmir as they have done in this case". For what are we people's representatives? "It is only by owning and addressing our problems and issues that the hearts and minds of the people can be won".
