Earlier, on Friday, echoing the voice of the nation, Congress president Rahul Gandhi asked the PM to spoke on the rape cases. "This is a national issue and not a political one".

Speaking on the issue, Gandhi said: "This is a matter about the safety of women in this country".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday thanked people who joined the candlelight protest in New Delhi on Thursday midnight, demanding justice for Kathua and Unnao rape victims. Parallelly, the BJP sacked two J&K ministers who had taken part in the rally in support of Kathua rape accused. Thousands are present here including the common people and people from all parties. Rahul Gandhi¿s sister and brother-in-law Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Robert Vadra, respectively, have also joined the protest with another prominent leader like Ambika Soni, Shobha Ojha, Ajay Maken and others.

He said Modi's silence over the rising atrocities against women was "unacceptable" and that India was waiting for him to speak up. The government's slogan of "beti bachao (save the girl child) " has turned into "betion ko BJP se bachaon", said Congress leader Randeep Surjewala.

Slamming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for covering up the rape incidents, the former union minister said, "The BJP has been exposed as they were trying to shield their leaders".

Many were shouting slogans like "Modi Bhagao, Beti Bachao" as they held candles as a mark of protest. Madhav said, "such crimes (Kathua) are inhuman and any attempt to communalise them needs to be condemned unequivocally". Talking to ANI, Leader of the Opposition Azad said ¿The government is sleeping and so at this time Congress will have to wake them up. "What have we become if we allow politics to interfere with such unimaginable brutality perpetrated on an innocent child?" he tweeted.

An eight-year-old girl from the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community disappeared near her house on January 10 in Jammu and Kashmirs Kathua district. The 8-year-old was kidnapped from a forest, force-fed sedatives and starved, as multiple men raped her over a period of days, before she was finally strangled to death.

A Special Investigation Team, formed to probe the incident, has arrested eight people, including two Special Police Officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destroying evidence.
