Six young men â some of them just teenagers â have been arrested by police after a girl was filmed being sexually assaulted in a shocking daylight attack.
A witness filmed the horrendous attack that saw a gang of men laughing and jeering as the ripped off the girlâs clothes.
Video of the assault, filmed in Jehanabad in Bihar state, India, was widely shared online, where police picked it up and began investigation.
Two of the attackers in the clip are still missing and being tracked down by police, senior officers said.
Nayyar Hasnain Khan has formed a special team of police to investigate the video, which has outraged thousands since it surfaced online.
In it, the girl is passed between the young men as she kicks and screams to try to get away.
One of the men lifts her feet off the ground as she tries to free herself.
No witnesses, including the person holding the filming the attack on a mobile phone, is seen doing anything to intervene.
Most of the attackers are teenagers, the police say.
A motorcycle belonging to one of them, which was also seen in the video, was a vital clue for the police.
The mobile phone with which the video was filmed has also been recovered by the police, they said.
According to the NDTV news channel, based in New Delhi, police are now carrying out door to door searches in the neighbourhood and talking to villagers to identify the rest of the attackers.
The girl and her family have also been offered counselling, officers said.
A First Investigation Report has been registered against the accused under the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
The incident comes in the middle of outrage and disgust across India over a series of child rapes.
The death penalty was recently brought in for child rape cases in Kathua, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, after nationwide anger over the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl.
While a six-year-old girl in Odisha died in hospital this weekend after being raped, strangled and left to die by a neighbour.
