An eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by the village head’s husband in Jharkhand’s Giridih district on Thursday. The accused man has been identified as Minku Mandal, who is the husband of the village head.
According to the police, a minor girl had gone with her mother to take a bath in a river located in the village.
