Two teenage sisters, aged 18 and 19, allegedly committed suicide by hanging from a tree in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal on Sunday morning. The police said that they were thrashed by their mother a day before for doing domestic work carelessly.

The family members of the girls said that the sisters had gone out on Saturday and were scolded by their mother when they returned home for forgetting to fodder the cattle on Saturday evening. They went missing at night and the villagers found their bodies hanging to the tree in the morning. However, according to some villagers, the girls were upset as their family had fixed their marriage without their consent.

"We're being told they were thrashed by their mother for not giving fodder to their cattle. The bodies were sent for autopsy," a police officer said.

In October 2018, a 15-year-old girl was found hanging from a tree in Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri. The police said she was allegedly beaten to death. The girl was found hanging with her dupatta or shawl around her neck.

In 2014, two teenage sisters were allegedly gang-raped and later hanged from a tree in western Uttar Pradesh's Badaun.
