Earlier this year, four people were arrested from the state's Jehanabad district after a video of them molesting a minor girl surfaced on social media. In the video, the girl could be seen struggling to defend herself against six-seven men who were trying to rip her clothes while lifting her off her feet. Terrified, the girl kept crying for help while looking into the camera but this did not deter the miscreants.
