These are the first pictures released of two Indian girls whose brutal rapes and murders shocked India and the world.

Murti and Pushpa were found hanging from a mango tree in northern India after being gang-raped.

The pair were cousins, aged 14 and 15 years old.

Three men have confessed to the crime and another two are on the run.

People who protested the rapes and called for change scuffle with police officers.
Two police officers have also been arrested for failing to investigate the rape and murder amid claims officers dismissed the case as the girls were a low caste known as “untouchables.”

 

The two teenage girls from an impoverished family disappeared after going to a field at night to relieve themselves.

Their bodies were found the next day, hanging from trees in an orchard. A postmortem examination revealed that both girls had been raped.
