Sup Travellers?! The world can be a cruel and nasty place and one 14-year-old girl from Norhtern India witnessed first hand just how cruel and nasty the world can be.

According to reports from BBC, the 14-year-old girl's brother stands accused of TRYING to sexually assault the wife of Birju Pasi, with the Jharkhand police chief telling the BBC the wife was "the victim of misbehavior on the part of the girl's brother."

So, as payback, Pasi was ORDERED by the head of the village council to rape the sister of the man who attempted to rape his wife. The Jharkland police chief says the girl, 14, was raped Monday by Pasi "out of retaliation" and that "the head of the village was instrumental in provoking this rape on the victim." Both men have been arrested, as has the girl's brother.

"We begged with folded hands but [the village council] would not listen. They dragged her away to the forest." The girl's mother said.

A police rep says that her father later took her to a police station, her clothes "smeared with blood." The Wall Street Journal notes that unelected village councils, like the one in question, are common in India, though they are illegal.

Rape cases in India have been running rampant lately, especially in Northern India. In May the two teenage girls who were found hanging from a tree in a village in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh were allegedly gang raped. That story in particular went viral.

This whole story sucks but what sucks more isn't only the rape but also the fact that the 14-year-old girl did absolutely nothing wrong and was punished. That in itself is cruel, unfair and nasty. I hope Pasi and the head of the village council have a very HARD time in jail. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
