The Congress also termed as "misleading" the BJP's talk of its two state ministers resigning from their posts.

In the video, which was played during a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, Mir is purportedly telling reporters that the locals believed the investigation was motivated and that the main culprits were still at large.

Mir, defending his remarks, said he never raised questions on J-K police's probe in Kathua rape and murder case. In Kathua, policemen that were supposed to be investigating the case stand implicated, while a politician from the ruling BJP is the main accused in Unnao. Later, during investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged that he was the mastermind of kidnapping, rape and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe with an ulterior motive of terrifying the community and drive them out of the village.

Asked about the demand for a CBI probe into the incident, the BJP leader said, "The police has completed the probe and now it is in the court of law". He said that the ministers resigned in order to address the fears of not only the PDP, but also the state and the nation. "We have had enough of these belated remonstrations and promises to bring justice when the communal cauldron is forever kept boiling by forces nested within the Sangh Parivar", they added. But the people who have victimised her are still alive and no action has been taken against them.

Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Nirupam said the PM had been silent on the two incidents for the "longest time" and he now needed to spell out clearly to the nation what he meant to do to ensure that justice was done in both cases.

Chinese official meets Kim Jong Un, ahead of inter-Korean summit
North Korea is marking its biggest national holiday by playing up its intention to strengthen ties with China. Song and an art troupe to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, to attend an global art festival.

The J&K government has appointed two special public prosecutors, both Sikhs, for the trial in the sensitive case, a move being seen as made to ensure "neutrality" in view of Hindu-Muslim polarisation over the case.

The incident came to light after the victim tried to set herself ablaze outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence on Sunday. There is also a sharp contrast between the strictly professional manner with which senior officers of the Jammu and Kashmir Police Crime Branch investigated the case in Kathua and the connivance of the state administration in Uttar Pradesh to protect the politically powerful from charges of rape and murder.

The girl went missing from near her house in Rasana on January 10 and her body was found seven days later in the forests nearby.

"Rest for the "baayan bazi" (making statements) we have been receiving in last couple of days, we will wait for the PDP to take a view on that and convey what is the view of the leadership".

In a related development, the Jammu High Court Bar Association (Jhcba) which had faced criticism from various quarters over its ongoing 12-day long agitation pressing for demands including handing over the Kathua rape and murder case to the CBI, welcomed the Supreme Court intervention into the matter and said it has full faith in the apex court.
