The West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC) Tuesday ordered a probe into the alleged gang rape of a minor in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district.


"We have ordered a probe and we have asked for the report in two weeks," WBHRC chairman Justice (retd) Ashok Ganguly told IANS.

A 16-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by seven locals Friday in Humayunpur in Madhyamgram town of the district, after she was accosted by the men as she made her way to a shop near her residence.

Two people, including the prime suspect, have been arrested so far, police said Tuesday.

Incidentally Madhyamgram is three kilometres away from Kamduni, which made headlines for the gruesome gang-rape and murder of a college student June 7.
