Five men held on suspicion of raping and murdering two teenage girls who were found hanging from a mango tree in India will not be charged with any offences, investigators said today.
Young cousins, Murti and Pushpa, aged 14 and 15, were found dead in the village of Katra in northern Uttar Pradesh state in May this year.
Their killings provoked national outrage after it emerged that police in the village initially refused to investigate due to the girls’ low-caste status.
