New Delhi: A Central Bureau of Investigation team consisting of 20 members headed by a DIG will reach Badaun district in Uttar Pradesh on Friday to probe the gangrape and murder of two Dalit sisters. The CBI had on Thursday registered a case of gangrape and murder against five persons over the killing of two teenaged cousins in Badaun, which has sparked angry reactions the world over.

Two weeks after the bodies of the cousin sisters were found hanging from a mango tree at a village in Badaun, the CBI took over the probe from Uttar Pradesh police, which has been accused of not taking prompt action against the guilty.

The CBI has mentioned in its FIR that the state police did not act when people approached them with the complaint of girls being kidnapped.

The agency has named two police officials--Chhatrapal Yadav and Sarvesh Yadav--along with three brothers--Pappu, Awadhesh and Urvesh Yadav--who have been accused of hatching a criminal conspiracy to commit gangrape, murder and violation of provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO).

The two girls, aged 14 and 15 years, were allegedly gangraped and murdered and their bodies were found hanging from a tree a day after they went missing on May 27 in a village in the Ushait area in Badaun.
