Unnao: Family of the 17-year-old rape victim on Sunday alleged that "goons" of accused Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar threatening villagers to keep quiet in connection with the case.
Madhav, who has been the BJP's pointsman on scripting the agenda with the PDP, told reporters in Jammu that the resignations of the two ministers would be handed over to Mehbooba Mufti for further action and also admitted that the two ministers had displayed a lack of discretion by taking part in the rally.
Preliminary CBI investigation has revealed that several high-profile politicians, bureaucrats and cops were involved in shielding BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, accused of raping an 18-year-old woman, sources said.
In the viral audio, Suneet Kumar Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Mauranipur police station, is heard telling Lekhraj Yadav, who's accused in dozens of murder, kidnapping and extortion cases, that his phone and location were on police's radar and he was next on the list of encounter.
The PDP thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and Ram Madhav for helping resolve the issue.
Madhav, largely credited for stitching together the ruling combine of the BJP and the PDP, denied that the two ministers had been asked to resign following pressure from its senior partner in the government. "That is also a confidence-building measure".

Scenes last week of lawyers trying to stop police from entering court to file charges against the accused sparked nationwide revulsion.
Earlier on Tuesday, the brother of Sengar was arrested by the police.
