      Hopefully the petition to help the sisters will gain sufficient momentum and result in a satisfactory outcome.

      Thank you. There has been denial from relevant people as to the authenticity of the story, but as village councils usually only issue verbal orders, there are no records kept of proceedings.

      Gopika Bashi, women’s rights campaigner at Amnesty International India, said that despite the doubts cast over the story there were no plans to withdraw its petition.
