CNN – Three brothers have confessed to involvement in the gang rape of two teenage girls in India, a police officer told CNN.

The men have pleaded guilty to the rape charges but have not admitted to killing the girls, police spokesman Mukesh Saxena said Sunday.

All five known suspects, including two police officers, have been arrested, he said.

The police complaint also names two unknown people in the case. Investigations are trying to determine their identity, Saxena said.

The assault on the cousins, ages 14 and 16, sparked outrage in the community in Uttar Pradesh state. After being gang raped, they were hanged from a mango tree, police said.

Villagers streamed into the homes of the girls’ relatives, weeping behind their customary veils. The mother of one of the girls said her daughter wanted to become a doctor to escape grinding poverty.
