The 16-year-old is sexually abused by 400 men in West India

A tragic drive is reported from India. A 16-year-old girl in West India reports being raped by hundreds of men.

In a statement to the Child Welfare Committee of India (CWC) on November 11, the girl, who was homeless, said she had been raped by 400 people in the Beed district of Maharashtra state, according to CWC chairman Abhay Vitthalrao Vanave. She mentioned two police officers in her complaint, Vanave said.

The girl was begging for money at a bus stop when she was allegedly forced to do sex work by three men, CNN reports.

While the number of suspected rapists would be difficult to verify, the girl could identify at least 25 suspected perpetrators, he added.

So far 7 people have been arrested by the suspects.

According to the police statement, the girl had said that she was married at the age of 13 to a 33-year-old man who sexually abused her.

She also told police she was sexually assaulted by her father, eventually pushing her to leave both houses and sleep at the bus stop.

Women's rights activist Yogita Bhayana said this was "the most tragic (rape) case in history".

"This girl was tortured every day, " she said, adding that police had failed to protect her. "We want strict action against all culprits."
