Fourteen people have been arrested over the alleged gang-rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl in India’s eastern state of Jharkhand, officials said on Saturday.

The teenage girl was burnt alive inside her home in the Chatra district on Friday, allegedly by men who had raped her a night before.

The arrests have been made since Friday night, and six more suspects were still at large, the region’s top official Jitendra Kumar Singh said.

The girl’s family said four men, allegedly drunk, kidnapped her from a wedding she was attending in a nearby village on Thursday night.

“They then took her to a deserted spot and sexually assaulted her,” the family source said.

The girl’s father later complained to the members of the village council but the accused men were let off after a punishment of 100 sit-ups and a fine of 50,000 rupees (750 dollars), Singh said.

“The family said that the men, angered over the complaint, barged into their home, beat them and set the girl on fire after pouring kerosene on her,” he said.

Medical tests to confirm the sexual assault was being conducted.

Police said they hoped to arrest the remaining suspects, including the key suspect and other village council members, soon.

The crime has been reported against the backdrop of spiralling outrage over the rape and killing of an 8-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir and several other cases of sexual assault of young girls in recent months.

India’s federal government recently approved stringent punishments for sexual violence against children, including the death penalty for those convicted of raping girls younger than 12. (NAN)
