A 16-year old girl was abducted from her home raped, burnt alive in India a day after being kidnapped.
The family complained to the local village council which on Friday ordered the accused to do 100 sit-ups and pay a fine of 50,000 rupees ($750).
Police said the punishment enraged the men, who beat the girl’s parents before setting her on fire.
The two accused thrashed the parents and rushed to the house where they set the girl ablaze with the help of their accomplices,” the officer in charge of the local police station, reported.
The accused men are absconding. An investigation team has been arranged to look into the case.
