Jaipur, April 16: The state police has rejected the rape and murder allegations death mystery of two girls and a boy, who found hanging from a tree in Rajasthan’s Barmer on April 13. The incident took place in Swaroop Ka Thala village of Barmer district. According to the police it is case of suicide.
Gangdeep Singla, police superintendent Barmer said, "The post mortem report has arrived and it shows no signs of rape and indicates it to be suicide," reported DNA. Singla further added that the police had been unable to comment on possible suicide motive and the cause for suicide was being investigated.
On Friday morning 13-year-old Shanti, her 12-year-old cousin Madhu and with 17-year-old Deshal were found hanging from a tree. The family of the boy and the police claimed it as suicide, but girls’ family is agreeing with this theory. Shanti’s father alleged Deshal for raping and murdering her daughter and niece.
The deceased girls were from Dalit community and Deshal was a muslin. Due to this reason the incident has caused unrest among the locals. The boy was often seeing loitering in his neighbourhood with his friends. Shanti’s father had already complained against Deshal at a community panchayat almost a year ago, reported DNA.
Three sets of footprints have been found at the suicide spot, claimed the police officers investigating the case. The locals also allege Deshal’s friend for his involvement in the death of all the three. The family members of the girls have also complained of being threatened by people of Deshal’s community.
