Rajgarh (Madhya Pradesh), Jun 15 (ANI): Father of a 17-year-old rape survivor alleged that village Panchayat in Madhya Pradesh's Rajgarh District declared them an outcast after he failed to follow its diktat to organise a community feast that would 'purify' her. While speaking to ANI, he said, "Until feast is organised we won't be included in the cast and village." The girl was raped while on her way back to home in January.

The accused was arrested and sent to judicial custody. Police confirmed that the incident occurred in January.
