Posted on Feb 22, 05:10PM | IBNS

Bhandara, Feb 22 : In the wake of the rape and murder of three minor sisters in Maharashtra's Bhandara district last week, the state government has reportedly suspended the headmaster of the school where they studied.

According to reports, the government suspended the headmaster as he did not inform the police or the family of the minor girls after they went missing from school on Feb 14.

On Feb 16, the bodies of the three sisters were found in a well.

No arrests have been made in connection to the case so far.

The mother of the three minor girls on Thursday demanded arrest of the perpetrators of the crime and their execution.

"They should be hunted down and brought before the people. They should then be hanged in public," she said speaking to media.

The woman had alleged earlier that police did not do enough to trace the girls since the missing complaint was lodged.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan called the incident 'painful'.

"The incident is extremely deplorable and painful. I appeal to the people to maintain calm and cooperate with the law-enforcers," Chavan said in a statement.

Autopsies on the bodies of the three girls showed they were raped and murdered.
