After BJP, Congress faces music over Kathua incident

"Therefore, keeping in mind the perception and general situation, the two BJP leaders, after holding consultations with the prime minister and other senior leaders of the party, made a decision to submit their resignations", Madhav told reporters.

BJP sources say that while the party is committed to securing the interests of Hindus in Jammu region, one of its factions has accused former ministers Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga of damaging the PDP-BJP coalition government by seeking to inflame protests against it. Mir added that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had expressed her displeasure with the BJP over the "conduct of two ministers".

The CBI has taken over the investigation in the three cases related to the alleged rape of the 17-year-old girl by Sengar. The victim's mother has alleged in the complaint given to the UP Police, which is now part of the CBI FIR, that the woman lured her daughter to the MLA after which he raped her. She said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state and urged "New Delhi to wake up to the Kashmir cauldron".

"They took the resignation of two ministers because as per media, their role was not positive, " said PDP leader and Works Minister Nayeem Akhtar.

Midfielder Paul Pogba was United's match-winner against City but produced another less than impressive display against West Brom . They clinched the silverware 24 hours later thanks to Albion forward Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header at Old Trafford .

"The campaign calling them pro-rapist is untrue and without any basis, " Madhav said.

The present turmoil and tension in the Jammu region could further escalate in case the Jammu-based ministers continued to remain glued to power, said Harsh Dev Singh, the party chairman. On Saturday, the party chose to forward them to the CM to diffuse crisis in the ruling BJP-PDP coalition. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance".

According to police charges, the minor from the nomad Bakerwal community was kidnapped on January 10. Earlier in the day, the Allahabad high court passed an order saying that the CBI should arrest the MLA and not just detain him and the probe agency should consider filing of an application for cancellation of bail granted to other accused in the case. Madhav accused the Congress party of playing double standards. The court will monitor the investigation and asked the CBI to file a status report on May 2, the next date of hearing.
