Mumbai: In yet another shocking incident, bodies of three minor girls were found dumped in a farm well in Bhandara district. The post-mortem report confirmed that the girls were raped before being murdered.

The girls - aged 6, 9, 11- were sisters and went missing on Friday 14 after which their parents lodged a complaint at the Lakhni police station. Two days later, some villagers discovered their brutalized bodies from a well near Murmadi, about three kilometres from their village.

The police initially registered a case of 'accidental death'. Later the autopsy report confirmed that the girls were subjected to unnatural sex before being murdered.

It was only after the villagers took to the streets, blocked traffic and protested outside the police station that a case of murder, kidnapping and rape was lodged.

Meanwhile, NCP leader Praful Patel has demanded a fast-track court trail and strict action against the accused. Talking to media person after meeting the victim’s family, Praful even demanded death sentence for the accused.
