Teenage Sisters Allegedly Gang-Raped, Murdered In India
NPR's Julie McCarthy reports today on another alleged gang rape and murder in India — this one involving two teenage sisters from the lowest Hindu caste whose bodies were found hanging from a mango tree. Julie says the two girls, ages 14 and 15, were killed in a village about 140 miles east of the capital New Delhi. "They reportedly had gone to a field to relieve themselves but never returned," Julie says. "Like hundreds of millions of Indians, they lacked a bathroom at home."
