"India is waiting." Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has now also instructed the state party chiefs to lead similar candlelight marches in all state capitals today to protest against the increased cases of sexual assault against women and the rape cases in Kathua and Unnao.

But Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, had categorically rejected the demand for a CBI probe made by a delegation of BJP ministers which met her in winter capital Jammu later.
