Two teenagers sisters were raped at gun point by four men on Wednesday in India’s north eastern city.
The sisters aged 13 and 15 were looking for their mother in a sugarcane field when the four men attacked them in the Kaserwa village, Superintendent of Police (Rural) Alok Sharma said on Wednesday.
The four men threatened the girls not to scream for help or told anyone about it they would get shot.
The men have been charged and arrest warrants have been issued, Mr Sharma added.
The attack comes in a day after an 8 year old girl was gang raped on Tuesday morning in Singaruli district
of Madhya Pradesh.
The two juveniles are alleged to have dragged her to a secluded spot and raped her before leaving her bleeding in pain to stagger home to her parents who took her to hospital.
Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked police to amp up foot patrols in rural areas in order to protect minors.
