BOKARO, INDIA (IBN/CNN) - In a horrific incident, a village council in Bokaro is alleged to have ordered the rape of a 14-year-old tribal girl.

The minor girl's family claimed that the teenager was allegedly raped because her brother had been accused of misbehaving with a female neighbor. They said that the village council instructed some youngsters in the area to rape the girl in order to take revenge.

Police have arrested three accused and are interrogating them to know the details about the incident.

Police official Jitendra Singh said, "Three people have been arrested and sent to jail. Legal procedure have been taken up. We are doing sort of a compensation to the victim. We have already done through investigation and don't expect more details to come."

"We are doing all that we can. We have captured the culprit. We will give him the necessary punishment. The reason for the crime is probably infighting within the community," added Manoj Rai, another official in Bokaro.
