Three Sisters Killed, New Scandal Rocks India
Another day, another horrible rape story emerging from India where three young sisters were raped, killed and dumped in a well.
There is a massive manhunt going on in the Bhandara district in Maharashtra state after 3 sisters ages 6, 9 and 11 were murdered.
According to the children’s family – they vanished on Valentine’s Day while returning from school.
The kids’ grandfather immediately went to the police and reported them missing – and just like in the case of the fatal gang rape victim from New Delhi – the police did nothing for two whole days.
On February 16th after angry residents took to the streets and demanded an investigation – the girls bodies were found.
Cabinet Minister Manish Tewari has revealed that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had given the family 1 million rupees ($18,300) and promised to find the criminals.
The children’s mother has turned down the money and is asking the Indian government to use it to find the killer/rapist instead.
Three men are currently in police custody in relation with these killings.
