Three people have reportedly confessed to the gang rape and murder of the two Indian teenage girls whose bodies were found hanging from a tree in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
Police authorities are still searching for two more suspects according to The Guardian. Two police officers have also been arrested, and two others suspended for failure to investigate the case when it was first reported to them.
The three currently detained suspects are cousins in their 20s from an extended family. They face murder and rape charges, which are crimes punishable by the death penalty.
