Jammu is on the boil and we are hopeful that the Supreme court will help defuse the crisis since it is the history of the court that whenever there is a crisis, its intervention helped in defusing the crisis, she said. Her body was found dumped in a forest near Rasana village seven days later. In Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, a minor girl tried to commit suicide outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence.
