BAREILLY: After an initial FIR was filed against four persons in the case of rape and murder of two minor sisters from a Dalit family in UP’s Kheri, police discovered the involvement of two more men in the crime and added relevant sections of the SC/ST Act to the FIR.
“My elder daughter was in class X while the younger one in class VIII. Both were innocent but those demons kidnapped them in front of my eyes. I couldn’t do anything. I want them to be hanged,” said the girls’ mother.
Kheri SP Sanjeev Suman said, “After a preliminary pro-be, we found that six men were involved in the crime — Mohd Sohail, Hafizullah, Karimuddin, Arif, Junaid, and a neighbour of the victims. Sohail and Junaid had recently become friends with the minors. The girls went with them to a secluded place, where they were raped by the two. They were strangled to death because they were persistent about marriage with the duo. The two then took the help of their friends and hanged their bodies from a tree to make it look like they killed themselves. ”
He added, “Another accused, who was the victims’ neighbour, had introduced the girls to Sohail and Junaid. He was the only one from their vil-lage, the other five were from an adjacent one. We first took the neighbour into custody and after getting leads from him, nabbed the others. We have sent their clothes and DNA samples for a forensic test. A post-mortem examination was also done by a panel of doctors in the family’s presence and everything was recorded on video. The report confirmed that the girls were raped and strangled. ”
The victims’ uncle said, “We are not satisfied with the police version, which says that our daughters went with the accused willingly. They were abducted in front of my sister-in-law, who even ran after the accused to rescue them. ”
