0

SUBALPUR: Male residents fled an Indian village on Friday after the alleged gang-rape of a young woman on the orders of tribal elders as police told of how locals tried to prevent her from reporting her ordeal. A total of 13 men have been arrested over the assault on the 20-year-old which was allegedly as punishment for “dishonoring” her community, a scattering of mud huts set amid palm trees and fields of rice and mustard. Her ordeal on Tuesday night, when she was taken to a thatched shed and repeatedly assaulted for a relationship she was having with a Muslim man, has rekindled the outrage in India over the treatment of women.
