SRINAGAR, Apr 14: Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, who also holds the home portfolio, today terminated the services of four policemen accused in the rape and murder of a minor in Kathua district.
The chief minister also wrote to the chief justice of Jammu and Kashmir high court, seeking a fast track court to conclude within 90 days the trial in the case that has caused a nation-wide outrage, official sources said here.
Reports said that the state government terminated the services of a sub-inspector, a head constable and two special police officials (SPOs) accused in the crime.
The development comes a day after the resignation of two Bharatiya Janata Party ministers in the coalition government -- Chaudhry Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga -- who had attended rallies in support of the accused in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua.
