Singh told reporters that he is in favour of ensuring proper justice to the family of the 8-year-old girl, who was raped and killed in Kathua three months ago.
"The victims' family should get justice," the minister said when asked about the case.
The girl, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community, had disappeared from a spot near her house in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir on January 10. A week later, her body was found in the same area.
A Special Investigation Team, formed to probe the incident, has arrested eight people, including two Special Police Officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destroying evidence.
Jammu has been on tenterhooks since the brutal rape and murder.
