Earlier in the day, the last rites of the two teenage girls found dead in an agriculture field in Babuhara village of the Asoha police station area were performed amid tight security arrangements, officials said.
Three girls — aged 16, 15 and 14 — were found in the field by some villagers on Wednesday night. They had left their home to bring fodder for cattle.
Apart from Section 302 (murder) of the IPC, police have slapped Section 201 against the accused for causing disappearance of evidence on a complaint of a victim’s father, police said.
BSP legislators walk out of UP Assembly over Unnao deaths
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislators walked out from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly in Lucknow on Friday over the death of two Unnao girls, alleging that police did not take prompt action in the case. The party moved an adjournment notice with BSP Legislature Party leader Lalji Verma alleging that police did not take any action on the day of the incident and accused the government of adopting a lax attitude.
In his reply, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Khanna gave details of the case, saying the post-mortem report of the two girls has been received and no injury marks have been found on the bodies.
Six police teams have been set up for investigation into the case and the government is with families of the victims, Khanna said.
But Verma expressed dissatisfaction over Khanna’s reply and staged a walkout with his party MLAs.
