New Delhi, March 1: Following close on the heels of brutal gang-rape and murder of a paramedical student in the national capital, the horrific rape and murder of three minor siblings in Bhandara, Maharashtra has shocked the country.

The three minor sisters, aged 11, 8, and 6 were said to be lured with food by the culprits. The three girls went missing on February 14 from their village Murwadi near Lakhni taluka in Bandara district, 65 kilometres from Nagpur.

After remaining missing for two days, the bodies of the girls were found dumped in a well near the village. Preliminary post-mortem report has confirmed that the girls were raped before being murdered.

The single mother of the victims has blamed the police for the tragedy. "The first day when we filed the complaint, the police didn't act on it. Had they looked for the girls, my girls would have been found. This is nothing but negligence," she said.

The mother had approached the police when her daughters failed to reach home late in the evening. However, police did not initiate any probe. The mother told news channels that after lot of hardship she lodged a missing report in the police station.

A fact-finding team of the National Human Rights Commission has already visited Murwadi village in Lakhani taluka this week where the incident occurred.
