Two girls in India were found murdered after being brutally gang-raped. Their bodies were left hanging from trees. Since police in India are known to not pursue many rape cases, public pressure is needed to ensure full prosecution of the criminals

S/N "The father of one of two girls found hanged in a tree in northern India after they were abducted and gang-raped by local men has said he has been threatened with violence by associates of the accused.

Sohan Lal, 50, told local reporters that people close to the three brothers detained in connection with the deaths had threatened mob attacks against him and his family after reporters leave the village of Katara Sadatgunj, around 200 miles from the capital Delhi. Lal said he had been told: "Once the media have gone, we will make war on you."

Such intimidation of witnesses and family members occurs often in India. Survivors of assaults and rapes are also subjected to further attacks to prevent them giving evidence or to force them to withdraw criminal complaints. Some are murdered."
