"The real culprit of Unnao's victim, who was raped reportedly in June 2017, and who pleaded at the doorstep of the BJP CM even attempting self-immolation is no one but the Chief Minister and he should immediately be sacked", said Surjewala.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) general secretary in-charge of Jammu & Kashmir Ram Madhav told the media in Jammu that resignations of two BJP ministers have been sent to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for further necessary action.

"Taking into consideration the situation and the general perception, the two ministers in consultation with party leaders made a decision to resign from their posts, " said BJP's national general secretary Ram Madhav after chairing a meeting of the party leaders in Jammu.

With the two BJP ministers stepping down now, Ms Mufti said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state.

Moving ahead in a probe, CBI detains the woman who lured the victim to the accused in the name of job. He said that the ministers resigned in order to address the fears of not only the PDP, but also the state and the nation. Her strong views and attitude to take on any leader in the party is said to be worrying many.

Addressing a press conference here, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar slammed Congress President Rahul Gandhi for his silence over the Jammu and Kashmir Congress chief's remarks.

PDP legislators including ministers and senior party leaders also met in Srinagar to discuss the situation arising out of the BJP ministers' resignations and the widespread outrage over the rape and murder incident. With these resignations, the number of ministers in the state government has come down to 22, including nine from the BJP. CBI officials said they would question the MLA at length and would take him to Unnao to reconstruct the scene of the crime and to collect evidence against him. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance", he said. A week later, her body was found in woods near her village.

He said the investigations had been completed by the state Crime Branch and a charge sheet had been presented in the court.

He 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.
