    I'm surprised this even made it into the news. Uttar Pradesh is one of the more backward areas of India. The value of women is almost nil. If one COULD dig up all the crimes against women, this might be tame. Yeah, it's awful - maybe the US should invade it?

    It looks like it might have been a family affair. They arrested the brother-in-law of one of the victims.

    Babar Jang, the brother-in-law of the victims, was arrested along with one Javed from Kandhla town of the district, Shamli SP Abdul Hameed said in a press conference.


    During interrogation, they disclosed that they had hired two persons for the purpose, Hameed said, adding efforts are on to arrest them.
