According to crime branch investigation, such a crime against the girl was committed to create fear among nomads and force them to leave Kathua.

The Congress today termed the protests over the arrest of a former bureaucrat and a special police officer in Kathua rape and murder as "politically motivated" with J&K police filing an FIR against the lawyers of a bar association who had objected to the filing of charge-sheet into the case yesterday.

Some civil society members and lawyers too demanded that the case be handed over the CBI, claiming that they do have faith in the Crime Branch.

The body of the girl from the Bakherwal community was recovered from Rassana forest in Kathua on 17 January, a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area.

"It is extremely unfortunate that some lawyers speak in the name of Jammu Bar Association and their behavior is an attempt to appease hard core elements of the RSS and the BJP, but they have decidedly brought bad name to Jammu", former Union Minister told KNS.

'Day to remember' after Rafael Nadal's record-setting win at Davis Cup
France , the 10-time winners, have two top 30 players in Lucas Pouille, ranked at 11, and Adrian Mannarino, the world 25. Spain has won the Davis Cup four times with Nadal, in 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2011.

The CB said it was in the process of producing a separate chargesheet against a "juvenile, who is among the main accused in the crime". "An 8 year old girl is raped & murdered and these so called lawyers do not want to see justice delivered". How low can one stoop to defend his prejudices and biases! The protesters later changed their demand and sought a CBI inquiry after severe criticism from different quarters, including the chief minister. "(But)... every effort is being made to shield and save the culprits by communalising this human issue of justice to a little child", they said.

Inspector General of Police (Crime Branch) Afhadul Mujtaba said that the charge sheet was filed against the accused despite resistance shown by some Jammu lawyers who blocked the way of police officials while on way to the court on Monday. However, police reinforcements had to be called to the spot to tackle the situation.

Soon after the incident, members of the Hindu Ekta Manch marched through the streets of Kathua with the tricolour to press for the release of the arrested persons.

"We should remember the rape of Asifa is a planned conspiracy supported by Indian state to change the demography of Jammu", they said.

The said prayer hall was maintained by retired revenue official Sanji Ram who is among the eight accused arrested in the case along with his son Vishal and nephew Shubham. The head-constable was charged with destruction of evidence.
