Walayar sisters' rape case: 4 yrs & no justice

Palakkad: The mother of two minor sisters, who were found hanging in their hut after an alleged sexual assault on them, tonsured her head on Saturday to protest against alleged inaction against the police.

The police, she said, had allegedly committed lapses in the probe of the death of the girls in 2017.

She shaved her head after staging a month-long satyagraha in Palakkad since January 26. The woman recently announced that she would shave her head and campaign across the state against the Left government if it did not take action on the police personnel for the alleged lapse.

Besides her, two activists tonsured their heads, expressing solidarity with the victims' mother. People raised slogans seeking justice for the women and her deceased daughters.

The oldest of the siblings, aged 13, was found hanging in their hut in Walayar in Palakkad district on January 13, 2017, and the younger one (9) on March 4 the same year.

Both were allegedly sexually assaulted.
