Chhattisgarh Police has detained the accused, Arjun Yadav, and is on the lookout for community members who ordered and carried out the ritual. The victim and her family work as daily wage labourers in the district. According to the media reports, the accused belongs to a political party and was in a drunken state when he eve-teased the minor. A case has been registered under Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (SC/ST) Atrocities Act. The girl is only 13 years old.
