A village jury in Pakistan ordered a 16-year old girl and her sister-in-law to be raped. The decision was made as restitution after the daughter of the rapist allegedly had relations with the brother of the girl. Police say the rapist had tried to rape the girl before but been prevented, so he sent his daughter to the family's home while the brother was there, then he called the other villagers and accused the boy of having an affair with his daughter. A village meeting was then called and the girls were ordered to be raped. The man then allegedly took them to an outhouse and raped them.
