Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga resigned on April 13 amid outrage over their support for the men accused of raping and murdering the 8-year-old girl in Kathua.
BJP state chief Sat Sharma received the resignations of both the ministers on Sunday morning, who forwarded them to Mufti, who later, accepted the resignations and passed them on to the state governor for further action.
The resignation was handed over to Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and she has accepted their resignations.
The minor victim had disappeared from near her home in a village near Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir on January 10.
Madhav had yesterday said, "That is why they had to resign". Another crime, in Uttar Pradesh, has captured the nation's attention, where a 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a BJP MLA.

"Rage over the agenda of division and hate your party and its innumerable offshoots have insidiously introduced into the grammar of our politics, our social and cultural life and even our daily discourse", they said in the letter.
Both the alliance partners - the BJP and the PDP - had separate legislature party meetings in Srinagar and Jammu yesterday to discuss the situation arising out of the polarisation in the state over the rape-cum-murder of the girl.
