Bhopal: Two policemen, accused of harassing two young girls who later committed suicide in Madhya Pradesh's Chhattarpur district, have been dismissed from service, police said Friday.

Taking a serious note of the incident, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday asked the Additional Director General of Police (Intelligence) RC Arora and Inspector General of Police (Intelligence) KN Tiwari to investigate the matter.

"Both the constables, Kanhaiyalal and Arvind Patel, have been dismissed from service," Arora, who reached Chhatarpur, 350 km from here, Thursday night, told IANS over phone. He also visited the residence of the girls and talked to Himanshu with whom the elder sister was, when the policemen harassed her.

Both sisters had committed suicide by consuming poison following the harassment. While the younger girl (13) died Wednesday, the elder (17) died Thursday in a hospital in Jhansi in Uttar Pradesh where she was being treated, police said.

Kanhaiyalal and Patel had allegedly caught the elder sister with her boyfriend May 21 in a deserted area. The cops snatched the mobile phone of the boy and forced him to leave the place, an official said. They then allegedly molested the girl and clicked some obscene photographs of her with the mobile phone.

Next day, the girl filed a written complaint with Chhatarpur's Additional Superintendent of Police Sushil Tiwari about the incident. The sisters also told their neighbours that the constables had come to their house Wednesday and were harassing them, police said.
