A group of people sit on top of the bridge where a 16 year old girl was raped who was kidnapped from outside of her house in the evening as she was returning from a local shop after buying a matchbox.
After being convinced by a NGO working in the area the family of the girl filed a case in the police station and are waiting for the final judgement. For now, the accused is out on bail.
