Patna, Jan 11 (IANS) A large number of people on Thursday assembled at Phulwarisharif, outside Patna to protest against the district administration in wake of the gang rape of two minor girls of Mahadalit community, leaving one of them dead.
The two girls, aged 8 and 12 years old, disappeared on Monday and were found abandoned in a pit near the road in Hinduni village under Phulwarisharif police station in Patna district on Tuesday.
