Two Girls Raped, Hanged in Northern India, Police Say

Posted: Updated:

New Delhi (CNN) -- Two teen girls have been gang-raped and hanged in northern India, authorities said.

The deadly attack happened Tuesday night at a village in Uttar Pradesh state's Budaun district, said R.K.S. Rathore, a deputy inspector-general of police.

The victims were 14 and 16 years old and were cousins, police said.

In their complaint, the families of the girls have accused three brothers of rape and murder, Rathore said.

"Both the attackers and the victims were of backward castes and from the same village," he said. "We are investigating all possible angles and collecting evidence. So far, we have no evidence that points to any kind of enmity."

One of the men has been arrested and charged, according to police.

The hunt is on for the other two, Rathore said.

A police constable has also been arrested over allegations that he sided with the suspects and delayed the registration of the case.
