A 12‑year‑old Dalit girl was allegedly raped by six men in front of her family in Uttar Pradesh, India.

Dalit means "broken/scattered" in Sanskrit and Hindi, is a term mostly used for the ethnic groups in India that have been kept depressed by subjecting them to un-touchability.

According to police, the incident took place in a village last Friday.

Of the six men, four have been arrested, while efforts are on to arrest the other two.

The girl has been sent for medical test.

According to reports, the accused had a dispute with the girl's family over the construction of drainage channel on Friday morning.

In the evening, they dragged the girl in front of the family and allegedly raped her and also thrashed the family members when they resisted.
