I didn't quite know what to do with this case, but I thought it deserved its own thread, even though cases from India don't get much attention on WS. I first saw this particular case mentioned here on WS in the thread that talked about European women who had been gang raped in India. Of course, the western media didn't pay too much attention to the case of two girls, 14 and 15, found hanging from a tree in a village in India back in May. Activists say it was a case of abuse of lower caste girls and the system supporting the higher caste perpetrators. Originally 5 men were charged, but in the past day or so, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has come out and said that they have determined that the two girls committed suicide in shame of their inappropriate behaviour. Something seems rotten in Denmark. (Just a figure of speech. No offense to the Danes!) http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Badaun-case-CBIs-suicide-theory-leaves-key-questions-unanswered/articleshow/45302402.cms?intenttarget=no&utm_source=TOI_AShow_OBWidget&utm_medium=Int_Ref&utm_campaign=TOI_AShow From an article shortly after the incident: http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/05/29/uk-india-killings-idINKBN0E91AI20140529 Here is the Wikipedia link for this case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Badaun_gang_rape I have to say I was shocked when I saw the most recent headlines, saying it wasn't rape, but rather suicide. What do the rest of you think?
