Bengal rights panel orders probe in gang rape

Kolkata, Oct 29 : 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.

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.
