Dalit sisters gangraped
Badaun (UP), May 29: In a brutal incident of human violation, two teenaged-cousins were gangraped and then hung to a tree in a village in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday. The two girls were missing from their homes since Tuesday. Their bodies were found the very next morning from a tree in Katra village in Ushait area.

The incident triggered protests in the area when the villagers blocked police access to the site until they were convinced that action would be taken. Citing police apathy, the villagers demanded suspension of all police officers on duty in Ushait police station.

Following this, FIR was registered against seven persons including constables Sarvesh Yadav and Rakshapal Yadav, who were suspended. Villagers alleged that the police had refused to file an FIR on Tuesday night.

As police awaited the postmortem report of the two girls, the four accused-Brijesh, Awadhesh and two other unidentified were arrested, said SP Chauhan.

Police are awaiting the postmortem report of the two girls.
