Three people including two policemen have been arrested after two teenage cousins from the low-caste Dalit community in India, committed suicide following their rape by five men.
The two teenage girls aged 14 and 15 were found on Wednesday night, hanging from a tree in a northern Indian village, after they went missing the night before.
They were said to have hanged themselves late Tuesday, May 27 after being gang-raped by five men in a village in the Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh state.
According to Budaun police chief, Atul Saxena, a post-mortem report suggests the girls committed suicide.
“But we will take into account all aspects before coming to a conclusion,” Saxena said.
He revealed that the head of Katra’s police station had been suspended for not acting immediately when the girls’ family complained they were missing.
Saxena added that a team of about 50 police officers were on the lookout for the absconding accused. Though he could not confirm their exact ages, he said they were in their late teens.
