A video of five young men molesting a minor girl in a sugarcane field in Balrampur district of Uttar Pradesh went viral on Wednesday. The police have arrested all five accused.

The incident reportedly took place about ten days ago in Khairahi village of Uttar Pradesh. The minor girl had gone to a sugarcane field with her friend for defecation. According to her account, five young men from the village captured her there and chased her friend away.

The men took her clothes off and made the three-minute-long video while molesting her, she said. One of the men was also semi-clad in the video.
