Two ministers of J&K BJP tenders resignation

Kathua rape and murder case took another turn on Friday evening after two BJP ministers submitted their resignation. Both the ministers - Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga and Forest Minister Lal Singh had backed the men accused in the Kathua rape case.
