A 19-year-old woman has been found hanging from a tree in a village in northern India, the third such case in weeks in Uttar Pradesh state, BBC Reports
The body was found in the Moradabad area, three hours’ drive from Delhi. Her family told police she was raped. A post mortem examination is under way.
Last month the gang rape and murder of two girls found in similar circumstances sparked outrage in India.
On Wednesday, a 44-year-old woman was found hanging from a tree in the Bahraich area.
Police said she had been threatened by locals for selling liquor in the area and her family filed a case naming five people connected to her death.
Her family alleged she was gang raped, but her post mortem proved inconclusive.
But it was the case on 29 May of two teenage girls gang raped and hanged in Badaun district that renewed a countrywide outcry over sexual violence.
Three suspected attackers have been held in that case, along with two policemen accused of dereliction of duty and criminal conspiracy.
