DCW chief Maliwal's fast demanding death penalty for rapists enters Day 3

Maliwal launched the protest at Rajghat on Friday in wake of the rape incidents in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao and Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua districts.

Kour said it was the victim's family which approached the court with a plea that they did not trust the police investigation.

Jammu: The trial in the gruesome Kathua rape and murder case will begin on Monday against eight accused, including a juvenile, even as Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti accepted the resignations of two controversial BJP ministers, who had participated in a rally in support of people arrested in connection with the rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Kathua.

Sanji Ram is among the eight arrested, along with his son Vishal Jangotra and his nephew, all of whom, according to the police, raped the girl. "It was sheer indiscretion on their part", he said.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, the DCW chief said: "I will not break my anshan (fast) until the Prime Minister does not (promise) the country a better system for the safety of our daughters".

The HRD minister rued that there had been no gender sensitisation for men in the country for generations, claiming it to be a reason behind the heinous crimes against women, and said, "No amount of condemnation is enough for such incidents".

She said Russian Federation had thwarted diplomatic efforts to halt Assad's use of poison gas, leaving no option but force. Antonio Guterres, the United Nations secretary general, urged restraint to avoid escalation in the region.

MLA Langate said, "Mehbooba Mufti she should have taken action against the ministers once the issue surfaced, and there is no role of PDP in sacking the two ministers". The chief minister said that she was in constant touch with BJP president Amit Shah and Madhav as well as Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

The Bar Council of India today, announced that it would send a five-member team to probe the conduct of Jammu lawyers in relation to the Kathua rape case.

The body of the Kathua girl was found in Rasana forest on January 17, a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area.

In a sensational development in the brutal rape and murder case of an eight-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, it has been revealed that Vijay Jangotra, one of the main accused in the case, had allegedly used a proxy condidate to appear on his behalf for an exam at a centre in Uttar Pradesh's Khatauli in Muzaffarnagar at the time of the incident. I was threatened yesterday that "we will not forgive you". "Like many other officers hailing from the Muslim community, Suliman Chowdhary tried to prove himself more loyal than anyone to the communal forces in Jammu and as such action needs to be initiated against such police officers like him, who have failed to discharge their duties in accordance with the law", Rasheed said.

He accused the Congress party of playing double standards. He said the Mehbooba Mufti-led coalition government in the state had been told to withdraw the directive concerning Tribal with regard to encroachments in Jammu.
