"The state's law and order is in shambles, it seems like there is no govt here. The government must resign on moral grounds, we will also meet Governor on 17 Jan over the deteriorating law and order in the state," Hooda told ANI.

In a horrific incident, a minor girl was brutally raped and murdered in Haryana's Jind on Sunday. Her mutilated body was found in a village in Jind district on Friday and was sent to PGIMS for the post-mortem.

Father of the victim said, "My daughter was kidnapped and raped, culprits should be punished, we want justice for her. If the administration had done its job well, an incident like this would have never happened."

Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said one person has been identified in the rape case.

According to a Times of India report, the family refused to accept her body for cremation. They demanded the case be handed to the CBI, a government job for a member of her family, Rs 50 lakh from the Nirbhaya Fund, two arms licenses. It was only after Haryana minister KK Bedi assured them of a time-bound probe and release of compensation, the family received the body for cremation.
