The brutal rape and murder of a minor girl triggered early seasonal migration of the nomadic Bakerwal community from Rasana village in the border district of Kathua.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud was also critical of the Jammu High Court Bar Association, which had passed a resolution not to attend the courts saying "it is the duty of the bar association as a collective body and they can not obstruct the process of law".

"Mir sahab has clearly said that the video they are talking about is one or one-and-half months old".

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said the country's resolve for ensuring justice in the Kathua rape-and-murder case would go a long way in restoring people's confidence in the system.

Despite the level of brutality in both cases, BJP leaders have either unambiguously stood in defence of the accused or have gone out of their way to evade questions. He then took her to his room and raped her, while an accomplice sat outside.

In the Unnao case, an 18-year-old girl has alleged she was raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar at his residence on June 4, 2017. "We all will have to work together to end this internal evil", he said.

Terming as "horrific" the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, United Nations chief Antonio Guterres has expressed hope that the authorities will bring perpetrators of the brutal crime to justice. "But why Ajay Singh Bisht (Yogi Adityanath), the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, was not removed?" he asked. The victim was drugged, raped repeatedly before being bludgeoned to death.

She said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state and urged "New Delhi to wake up to the Kashmir cauldron".

In Odisha, police said a four-year-old girl was raped by a youth in Balasore district. In Kathua, policemen that were supposed to be investigating the case stand implicated, while a politician from the ruling BJP is the main accused in Unnao.

According to the reports, the girl had taken some cows out to graze and was searching for a missing cow when she was abducted.

In connection with the case, two FIRs have been filed: one against eight people for allegedly being involved in the crime and another has been filed against a group of lawyers who had allegedly stopped the police from filing chargesheet against the eight accused.
