A day after public outrage mounted over the rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Kathua in Jammu, and the death in custody of the father of an alleged rape victim in Unnao, the BJP, whose MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is an accused in the Unnao rape case, sprang to do damage control.

"We will speak to our party legislature and also to the two ministers who have submitted their resignations", Madhav, who is also the BJP incharge for Jammu and Kashmir, said.

He said the two BJP leaders had visited the Hindu Ekta Manch rally to clam down the people and clear misgiving about the investigations.

With the opposition stepping up its charge that the states were shielding perpetrators of violence against women, Modi said justice will be done to daughters of the nation.

The SC bench said every party before any court is entitled to engage a lawyer and if advocates oppose this principle then it would be destructive of justice dispensation system.

"Migration had taken place. It is unlike other cases like Jessica Lal murder case where people had to come out on streets demanding arrest of the accused persons", he said. They did the right thing.

An eight-year-old girl in Kathua was kidnapped, kept in captivity for a week in a temple, drugged and raped by at least six men, sources said.

Earlier in the morning, the Bench had sought "something on record" from a lawyer for it to act suo motu, but it made a decision to crack the whip on being told about the obstruction on the day the charge-sheet was to be filed in a Kathua court. Should we not listen to them?

The Supeme Court (SC) said on Friday it has chose to examine, of its own accord, the Kathua gangrape-murder case +, and has also sent a notice to the Bar Council of Jammu and Kashmir for preventing the filing of a chargesheet against the rape accused.

The girl from the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community disappeared near her house on January 10 and a week later, her body was found in the same area.

"When we met people they put forward a demand for a CBI inquiry, we had simply put it across, being the people's representatives".

Meanwhile, Mehbooba Mufti, who also holds the Home portfolio, terminated the services of a sub-inspector, a head constable and two Special Police Officers (SPOs) accused in the crime.
