Indian police have arrested one man and are looking for four other suspects after two teenage girls were gang-raped and then hanged from a tree in a village in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, police said on Thursday.
The two cousins, who were from a low-caste Dalit community and aged 14 and 15, went missing from their village home in Uttar Pradesh's Budaun district when they went out to go to the toilet on Tuesday evening.
The following morning, villagers found the bodies of the two teenagers hanging from a mango tree in a nearby orchard.
"We have registered a case under various sections, including that of rape, and one of the accused has been taken into custody. There were five people involved, one has been arrested and we are looking for the others," Budaun's Superintendent of Police Man Singh Chouhan told reporters.
Chouhan said a post-mortem confirmed the two minors were raped and died from the hanging. DNA samples have been also been taken to help identity the perpetrators, he added.
The victim's families say the girls were gang-raped and then hanged by five men from the village. They allege that local police were shielding the attackers as they refused to take action when the girls were first reported missing.
It was only after angry villagers found the hanging corpses and took the bodies to a nearby highway and blocked it in protest, say the families, that police registered a case of rape and murder.
A case of conspiracy has also been registered against two constables, said Chouhan, adding that they had also been suspended.

India, land of introspection and rape.
The Indian Police must have been tuned into Eric Holder.
I did not know that Amish rapists lived in India.
Horribly sad. Disgusting. Proof that our civilization is a thin veneer, and that without our spirituality and passing on what we’ve learned over so many centuries, we’re no different than those who crucified Christ and fed people to the lions.
Not all of us would have fed people to lions.
However, we are all guilty of Christ being nailed to the Cross.
India's caste system has always allowed abuses of the lowest caste, the untouchables. Some progress has been made in the cities, but in poor and rural areas they are still treated as subhuman.
"Went out to go to the toilet" where? In the outhouse? In the woods? In the rice field? Uncivilized!
Makes me very sad. May God rest their souls.
As for India, it’s huge, complex, and needs comprehensive education and laws. Hopefully they will find a way to stop these savage attacks.
Cut'em back to colonial era rations, let malaria do its work, and knock off the clean water initiatives.

When walking the rice paddy berms, fresh poop was always a bad sign, a VN lesion of the day.
According to another thread today, the randy buggers can blame their behavior on global warming. :-))
Hope they had HIV
...(with nukes and a space program).
Of course it is, scientifically speaking, equally probable that this sort of beastly behaviour amongst the worthy oriental gentlemen actually CAUSES Global Warming.
Should that be the case, we must stop stocking cobra anti-venom at District Hospital and tell that Jim Corbett fellow to stop shooting man-eating tigers. BTW, when is this season's monsoon going to start. That ought to cool the bloody natives down a bit.
It’s hard to tell which one is winning the race to the bottom — Islam or Hinduism.
What a disgusting place India is.
“”Went out to go to the toilet” where? In the outhouse? In the woods? In the rice field? Uncivilized!”
Many of them actually believe that inside toilets, and to an extent, any indoor plumbing, is uncivilized.
A foul-smelling toilet would be an improvement. To me, India smells like death.
I quit a good job when they told me I would need to start going to Chennai twice a year for a week to 10 days at a time.
Have you ever seen anything of India? That place is a horrible, 3rd-world cesspool! Apart from any muslim country, this tops my list of places never to go to.
I went to India on business two years ago. One of the issues they have in the rural areas is that there are no facilities. Basically, girls have to go off into the woods to take a squat. Rape is a real ensuing problem. I am guessing that is why the two girls went together, as a safety measure.
