The mother of three girls who were found dead at the bottom of a well in western India after they were allegedly raped has called for those responsible to be caught and publicly hanged.

The Hindu reports that the sisters, age 6, 8, and 11, disappeared from their village on Valentine’s Day.

Police said that the autopsy suggests the girls were sexually assaulted but the report is not clear on how they died.

Initially, The Hindu reports, police said the girls were killed in an accident. The police recanted this statement after thousands protested and blocked the national highway for more than six hours.
