(Scroll down for video) Anger is growing after police in India, are doing nothing to locate those behind the gang rape of two girls, who used an outdoor field as a bathroom.
Two police officers and a third man are suspected of gang raping and murdering the two teen sisters before their bodies were found hanging from a mango tree.
The discovery of the two bodies renewed public outrage about sexual violence in the country. Residents of Katra, found the bodies hours after the girls, aged 14 and 15, disappeared from the fields that they used as a toilet because their house had no bathroom.
Hundreds of people spent Wednesday, in silent protest over the police inaction in the case. Residents were recorded sitting under the bodies of the hanging girls, preventing police from removing them until the suspects are caught.
Police claim that they have arrested three suspects and are looking for four more men who allegedly participated in the crime. Autopsies confirmed that the girls were raped and strangled before being hanged.
The chief of the police in Katra, has been suspended for ignoring a complaint that was filed after the girls went missing.
