Two Our Of Three Unnao Sisters Buried
The two girls were buried amid tight security, reports suggest. Since they were unmarried, as per family traditions, they have been buried and not cremated.
Earlier, villagers had been in opposition to burying the girls' bodies until the police handed them over to the family. They even asked for a CBI probe into the case. “We want a CBI inquiry because our girls were murdered and we are being harassed," the girls' mother said.
"The deceased girls' post-mortem revealed no external injury. The cause of death has not been ascertained and the viscera has been preserved for chemical analysis," DGP HC Awasthi was quoted saying.
