In the case of gang rape of two real sisters in Lakhimpur Kheri on Wednesday, both were cremated late on Thursday evening. The District Magistrate has assured the family that their three demands will be fulfilled. Politics continued throughout the day after the matter came to the media on Thursday morning. The police have arrested all the six accused in this case. According to the post-mortem report, both the sisters were first gang-raped, after which they were strangled to death with a rope. The bodies were then hung from the tree.
The SC/ST Commission has taken cognizance of the gang rape and murder of two sisters in Nighasan of Lakhimpur Kheri . The commission has sought a report from Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra, DGP, District Magistrate Lakhimpur Kheri and SP Lakhimpur.
The dead bodies were cremated late in the evening amidst heavy security forces after a day-long uproar over the murder of real sisters after the rape. After the post-mortem, the administration was once again stunned when the family members refused to perform the last rites of the two girls, saying that until their demands were met, the bodies of the daughters would remain the same. However, later on the persuasion of the administration, the family agreed and they voluntarily allowed the funeral.
