The search for two additional suspects continued today for a fourth day.

India has a long history of tolerance for sexual violence, but the gang rape and killing of the 14 and 15-year-old cousins in Uttar Pradesh state caused outrage across the nation.

Police officer Atul Saxena said today that police were preparing identity sketches of the two missing suspects based on descriptions provided by the arrested suspects.

Authorities also have arrested two police officers for failing to investigate when the father of one of the teenagers reported the girls missing in a tiny village in Uttar Pradesh.
