"She was tortured, drugged, gang-raped and murdered", the girl said in the video.

Police reports indicate Asifa was locked inside a temple and repeatedly raped for three days and finally strangled to death.

Referring to the rape and murder of Asifa, the letter said it was a "moment of existential crisis", the "darkest hour" in "post-Independence India".

They were also protesting the rape of a teenage girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao.

Just north of Surat in the town of Etah, the U.K. Sun reported a girl, 7, was found dead on Monday after she was allegedly snatched from a wedding ceremony she attended with her parents. A day later, her father, who had been mercilessly thrashed for his refusal to withdraw the case, died.

An Indian American girl who calls herself a "Tamil Indian at heart" sent a video message to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that she will skip taking her summer vacation to India for fear of rape, after recent incidents in which two young girls have reportedly been gang-raped in the country.

"I was threatened yesterday (Sunday) that "we will not forgive you".

"Rape flies in the face of Hindu values, and thus compels us to offer condolences and compassion to victims and their families, and simultaneously work to ensure that the law and law enforcement work impartially and efficiently to deliver justice", it said. Different arms of the local government and political groups conspired to subvert the initial investigation and are using extrajudicial means to protect the accused.

The move follows widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of an 8-year-old girl in India's Jammu-Kashmir state, the alleged rape of a girl by a ruling party lawmaker in Uttar Pradesh state, and several other rape cases involving girls in the country. "We very much hope that the authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice, so they can be held accountable for the murder of this young girl". "UN should come forward and help Kashmiris to resolve this long pending issue in accordance with the aspiration of the people of Kashmir", she added.

Ahmed, a non-affiliated member who wanted the United Kingdom government to take up the issue of self-determination in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and the northeast, mentioned the Kathua rape case while asking how Britain could help bring her assailants and those in other cases to justice.
