Women 'outraged' at India gang rape 'collusion' by authorities

The chief minister of a northern Indian state where two teenage cousins were gang raped and hanged has recommended a federal inquiry into the incident.

The girls were found hanged from a tree in Badaun district earlier in the week. Three suspected attackers have been detained, along with two policemen accused of dereliction of duty and criminal conspiracy.

The victims' families say it took police more than 12 hours to respond to reports they were missing. Sanjoy Majumder reports.
