This story is so heart wrenching and barbaric it makes you sick to the stomach. On Wednesday May 28, the bodies of two girls age fourteen and fifteen were found hanging from a tree hour after they went missing. The girls had gone into the field to relieve themselves because they had no toilet.

Reports say the father went to the local police station to report them missing but was ignored. Interestingly two police officers were among those arrested in connection with the deaths.

Autopsies carried out on the girls found evidence that they were raped and strangled before they were hung.

India is a place where no woman is safe. A rape occurs every 22 minutes and activists believe this number is low as many of the cases go unreported. Rape is tolerated and accepted as a part of the culture and the victims are often ostracized.

The women of India need outside intervention to pressure the government to do more to protect the women. They are helpless and defenseless because the very people employed to protect are themselves carrying out some of these atrocities.

    One of the world’s Great Democracy has consistently failed to curtail sexual violence. The “untouchable” are often killed en mass without provocation. Yet many western government were silent about it, except their NGOs.
