The girls had been missing since Wednesday evening, the police said. A relative discovered the bodies on Thursday morning in this thickly forested part of Assam.
Locals suspect that the girls were first raped and then killed. The police said a post-mortem will determine if that is correct. "We have recovered the bodies and sent those for postmortem and forensic test," said Nabin Singh, a senior officer handling the case.
