Her body was recovered from Rassana forest on January 17, a week after she went missing.

During the investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged he was the mastermind behind the kidnapping, rape, and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe. She was taken to a temple in Rasana village in Kathua district.

Mehbooba Mufti, chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday terminated the services of the four cops accused of rape and murder of the minor Kathua girl. Udhampur Police is investigating the case, and is searching for the protestors who are behind it. The BJP ministers extended their support to the demands of the fringe group. Such incidents happening in any parts of India shake our conscience. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi raises ' Beti Bachao' slogans, but his government has failed to provide minimum security to women".

With these resignations, the number of ministers in the state government has come down to 22, including nine from the BJP.

While a minor was raped in Unnao and her subsequent pleas for an FIR allegedly ignored by state police because a BJP MLA was reportedly involved, an eight-year-old girl in Kathua was first kidnapped, then sedated, raped and murdered.

"I have been deeply, deeply disturbed by the rape case in Kathua and all the recent rape cases that have happened on children". "Heartening to see the Supreme Court take cognisance of the attempted obstruction of justice by some lawyers in the brutal Kathua rape and murder case reminding us once again of the greatness of this nation", she said.

The remarks of United Nations chief came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday finally broke his silence on the horrific Unnao and Kathua rape incidents and said that such incidents are "shameful and can not be part of a civilised society". "They are calling me anti-national and anti-Jammu; I am not an alien, I am from Jammu", she added. Justice will be done.

President Rajinder Bazar Association, Atul Raj Pal said, "Let us not get divided over Aasifa case".

BJP General Secretary and its Kashmir pointsman Ram Madhav, who was here to attend the party's legislature meet, ruled out any threat to the ruling alliance in the wake of the resignations by the two ministers - Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga.
