SRINAGAR (IANS) — Jammu and Kashmir’s National Conference on Friday demanded sacking of two BJP ministers for defending the accused in the Kathua rape and murder case.

A party statement said that a day long meeting of the party’s Core Group at its headquarters here on Thursday, chaired by party President Farooq Abdullah and attended by Working President Omar Abdullah, discussed “in detail the insensitive handling of the horrific Kathua rape and murder case by the state government”.

“It also expressed disappointment at the failure of the Chief Ministers to act against two cabinet ministers who openly rallied support to divisive groups out to subvert the investigation and shield the accused.”

Expressing solidarity with the victim’s family, the NC said that it will not cooperate with the state government “until and unless the two erring cabinet ministers are sacked for their unacceptable, abhorrent and criminal behaviour in the light of this tragedy and its politicization”.

The NC also warned that it would consider launching a civil disobedience movement against the state government if it fails to act against the two ministers.
