The parents of the Badaun girls who 'hung themselves' according to CBI's report, have challenged the investigative authority. They said on Thursday that CBI has not given any reason for the 'suicide.'

Rejecting the theory, the parents have appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and threatened to kill themselves if justice is not delivered, reports NDTV.

Earlier on Wednesday, the CBI came to the conclusion that the two teenage girls found hanging from a tree in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh, had committed suicide. The incident, which took place in May this year, created a furore in the country because of which the case was handed to the CBI. The FIR filed by the police said that the two were gangraped before being killed.

According to sources, the investigators claimed that the local police had erred by concluding that the two girls were murdered, said NDTV.

The girls, who were cousins, were found hanging from a mango tree near their village on May 28, a day after they were reported missing. Autopsies had confirmed that the two, aged 14 and 15, were raped before they died.
