Indian Janhit Sangharsh Samiti Uttar Pradesh members hold posters and chant slogans against the Chief Minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav as they take part in a protest against the gang-rape and murder of two girls in the district of Badaun, in Allahabad on June 5, 2014. The protests came amid a growing uproar over the killings in Uttar Pradesh, with the United Nations saying violence against women should be regarded as a matter of basic human rights.
