Two police officers in India have been sacked for refusing to help search for two missing girls who were later found gang-raped and hanged, authorities say.

Three suspected attackers have been arrested, along with two policemen accused of dereliction of duty and criminal conspiracy.

The government has pledged to set up a fast-track court to prosecute the attack this week in Uttar Pradesh.

Alleged police inaction sparked outrage in the teenagers’ village.

The father of one victim told the BBC he was ridiculed by police when he sought help in finding his missing daughter.

He said that when policemen found out he was from a lower caste, they “refused to look for my girl”.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that two more gang rapes of minors occurred in the state this week.
