Badaun Case: CBI reportedly says girls committed suicide

New Delhi/ Badaun, Nov 27 (ANI): After a five-month probe in the infamous Badaun case, the CBI has reportedly claimed that the two teenage sisters had allegedly committed suicide, putting to rest all speculation that the duo was gang-raped and murdered. The Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics, which conducted the forensic analysis, had already ruled out sexual assault on the victims. All five suspects already passed lie-detection and psychological tests done by the forensic experts. Meanwhile the Chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women Barkha Shukla Singh said that the CBI should revisit reports and culprits must be punished. The incident had come to light on May 28 when the bodies of two cousins - aged 14 and 15 years old - were found hanging from a tree in a village in UP's Badaun district, sparking a nation-wide outrage.
