Police said the plight of the two girls, aged 13 and 15, came to light following a complaint by their mother.

The incident comes close on the heels of a similar incident from Dharmadom in Kannur district where a 13-year-old girl had been sexually assaulted by her father, 15-year-old brother and an uncle for nearly two years. All the three have been arrested.

Kerala Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said in Thiruvananthapuram that police had been asked to conduct a thorough probe into both the cases and bring the culprits to book without delay.
