In a similar case, in 2014 two cousins were found hanging from a tree in Badaun district of Uttar Pradesh. This incident had left the nation in a state of shock. As per reports, it was believed that the sisters were raped and then hanged.
However, over the lack of evidence, then the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) reached on a consensus that the duo had committed suicide.
