NEW DELHI (AFP) - Four police officials and a forensic expert have been accused of suppressing evidence in the rape and murder of two women in Kashmir - a case that has triggered violent protests. Kashmirs Law and Finance Minister Abdur Rahim Rather said Saturday that an indictment had been handed to a special investigation team, pending the likely arrest of the five suspects. The charges followed a judicial probe into the case which concluded that the five not only failed to discharge their proper duties, but also destroyed important evidence. The bodies of a 17-year-old girl and her 22-year-old sister-in-law were discovered in a stream on May 30. Police initially said they drowned, but later acknowledged they had both been raped and murdered. The case triggered widespread anti-India protests in Occupied Kashmir Valley with demonstrators accusing the security forces of being directly involved in the two womens deaths. Police say they are still investigating the murders.
