The CBI has concluded that the two girls found hanging from a tree at Badaun in Uttar Pradesh on May 28 had committed suicide. Their family members said they had been denied justice.

According to the CBI, the cousins committed suicide hours after their relative spotted the elder one in an intimate position with 19-year-old Pappu Yadav, whom she had been seeing for the past six months. Their phone records revealed that they had made some 400 calls to each other.

The girls were found hanging from a mango tree near their village on May 28.

The father of one of the girls said he would approach Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Supreme Court against “this denial of justice to poor families.”

“We have been denied justice. Our girls could not commit suicide,” he told The Hindu from Badaun.
