Kathua, Unnao rape-case

Delhi: Rahul Gandhi leads midnight candlelight march to protest crimes against women Rahul Gandhi, Congress leaders hit streets demanding #JusticeForAsifa, gather at India Gate

Asked about two BJP ministers in Jammu and Kashmir resigning after participating in a rally to defend the accused, Maken said that this came in wake of "pressure which was built due to the protest led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi".

The leaders of the BJP have said that the Congress is trying to politicise the rape cases to score political points ahead of the crucial Karnataka Assembly elections on May 12 and the Lok Sabha elections next year.

Mr. Gandhi's sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, accompanied by her husband, also joined the protest at midnight. "Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", tweeted Rahul Gandhi. "The women of the country should feel safe", he said.

Demanding action against accused of Unnao and Kathua rape cases, Congress president Rahul Gandhi has reached here to hold a midnight candlelight march.

"Women in India are scared to step out of their homes".

Anti-BJP slogans were heard at the march even as senior Congress leaders urged the people to keep it a "silent" protest.

Both the Unnao and Kathua rape cases have a marked similarity in the sense that in both cases the assailants have been identified, yet justice is yet to be served.

Earlier in the day, Rahul also took to Twitter to question Modi's silence on the issue and called it "unacceptable". An eight-year-old girl was abducted and raped over and over before being horrendously murdered by a group of men in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua.

The Kathua girl, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community, had disappeared from a spot near her house on January 10.

According to PDP sources, accused Policeman are being terminated from service in connection to the case.

When the girl wrote to PM Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Adityanath, accusing the MLA of rape, action was taken, Lekhi added.

She was sedated and repeatedly raped before her head was smashed and her body thrown in the forests next to Rasana village.

In the Unnao rape case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday registered three cases against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl.
