A community is outraged after a village elder allowed a man to rape a 10-year-old girl to punish her father.
Now, that village elder of India, was arrested for allowing the child to be raped as punishment for her father beating a drunk neighbor, who broke into their house.
It is alleged that the village elder approved the “rape revenge” for the girl’s father.
The incident began when the 25-year-old man broke into the victim’s house at midnight, and tried to rape the man’s wife.
The man defended his family by beating the drunk man until he left the house.
However, the next day, the “battered and bruised” neighbor reported the father to one of the village elders in the district of Bokhara.
The neighbor was given permission to rape the man’s daughter as punishment for his “violent” actions.
The neighbor dragged the girl into bushes and raped her. The girl’s mother was frantically looking for her daughter.
One hour later, the mother managed to find her daughter seriously injured. The neighbor and the village elder were arrested over the incident.
