    Lucknow: The five accused in the gang-rape and killing of two girls in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district last month will undergo a brain mapping and narco test, an official said Friday.

    The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had sought a POCSO (Protection Of Children From Sexual Offences Act) court's permission to conduct the tests.

    An official told IANS that the court has given a go ahead, following which the tests will conducted on the five accused - Urvesh, Pappu, Avdhesh, Head Constable Chatrapal and Constable Sarvesh.

    The court has left it to the CBI to choose the location for the tests.

    An official said the accused, prior to the court's permission, were asked if they were willing to undergo these tests and they reportedly gave their nod.

    Two girls, both sisters, were gang-raped and then hanged from a tree outside their village in Badaun last month, leading to a national outrage. Even the United Nations and the US took note of the incident and aired their concern on the growing crimes against women in Uttar Pradesh.

    The state government after initially trying to cover the issue relented and ordered a CBI probe.
