Supporters of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) shout slogans as police use a water cannon to stop them from moving towards the office of Akhilesh Yadav, the chief minister of the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, during a protest against recent rape and hanging of two girls, in Lucknow June 2, 2014. Three men were arrested for the crime in Uttar Pradesh that underscored the enduring culture of sexual assault in India and the capacity for appalling violence between Hindu castes. Two policemen were held on suspicion of attempting to cover up the killings. On Monday, Modi's BJP sought to make political capital. Workers from the party accused the Uttar Pradesh state government, headed by Samajwadi Party, of negligence over the crimes and of being unfit to govern. Police fired water cannon at the protesters, who were demanding the state government be dismissed and the imposition of direct, presidential rule.
