"SP (Superintendent of Police) Bhandara, Dr. Arati Singh and senior officers visited the area and the investigation is ongoing. The state government has reported that the in-charge of the police station was suspended on February 19 as he did not deal with the complainant promptly and professionally.

"Teams from Maharashtra Police have been formed to pursue different lines of investigation and to track the offenders," said Shinde's statement tabled in the Lok Sabha.

Shinde said he was "deeply shocked at the despicable, ghastly and brutal manner in which three minor girls from the same family were brutally raped and murdered and then thrown into an abandoned well near Murwadi village" in the district.
