Badaun, April 2: Almost a year after the alleged gangrape of two sisters shook Badaun, comes another similiar incident. Two minor girls were kidnapped at gun point and allegedly gangraped by five men.
The incident took place on Wednesday night after the girls ventured out of their homes for some work. When both the girls did not return back for a long time, their relatives went looking for them.
It was then that they heard the girls screaming for help and then alerted the police officials.
The accused were handed over to the cops. Out of the five accused, two of them are brothers. Officials said that a case has been lodged and the girls have been sent for medical examination.
Last year, two cousins went mising from their homes on May 27 and the next day their bodies were found hanging from a tree.
The Akhilesh Yadav government was criticised thoroughly for lack of law and order in the case. The CBI said the two girls had committed suicide, fearing retribution as the elder girl's affair with a local boy from a different caste had come to light.
However the girls' families had alleged that they were kidnapped and murdered by five youths from the village.
