Indian villagers protest after teenage sisters raped and hanged from tree
policemen among four people arrested for allegedly raping teenage girls who
were found hanging from a tree in a village in northern India
Two teenage sisters in rural India were raped and killed by attackers who
hung their bodies from a mango tree, which became the scene of a silent protest
by villagers angry about alleged police inaction in the case.
Two of the four men arrested so far are police officers.
Villagers found the girls' bodies hanging from the tree early on Wednesday,
hours after they disappeared from fields near their home in Katra village in
Uttar Pradesh state, police superintendent Atul Saxena said. The girls, who
were 14 and 15, had gone into the fields because there was no toilet in theirhome.
Hundreds of angry villagers stayed
next to the tree throughout Wednesday, silently protesting the police response.
Indian TV footage showed the villagers sitting under the girls' bodies as they
swung in the wind, and preventing authorities from taking them down until the
suspects were arrested.

Autopsies confirmed the girls had been raped and strangled before being
hung, Saxena said.
The villagers accused the chief of the local police station of ignoring a
report by the girls' father Tuesday night that the girls were missing. The
station chief in Katra, 180 miles (300km) south-west of the state capital,
Lucknow, has since been suspended.

Records show a rape is committed every 22 minutes in India, a nation of 1.2
billion people. Activists say that number is low because of an entrenched
culture of tolerance for sexual violence, which leads many cases to go
unreported. Women are often pressed by family or police to stay quiet about
sexual assault, and those who do report it are often subjected to public
ridicule or social stigma.
India tightened its anti-rape laws last year, making gang rape punishable by
the death penalty, even when the victim survives. The new laws came after the
fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi that triggered
Health workers, police and women's rights activists say women and girls face
the risk of rape and harassment when they go out into fields or bushes due to
the lack of toilets in their homes.
More than a half billion Indians lack access to toilets. A recent study said
around 30 percent of women from poor families faced violent sexual assaults
every year because they did not have access to a safe toilet.
Last month, the head of Uttar Pradesh state's governing party, the
regionally prominent Samajwadi Party, told an election rally that the party was
opposed to the law calling for gang rapists to be executed.
