The police today arrested five persons in Birbhum district for allegedly circulating a video that featured a village tribal girl when she was being paraded naked.
The police said the 17-year-old girl was paraded naked at a village of the district last April for allegedly having an affair with a boy of a different community.
The girl was made to run/walk for miles across villages while men molested her throughout and other unspeakable violence was meted out to her by bystanders.
However, neither the girl nor her family lodged any police complaint against the persons involved in the incident which was captured by a camera by some persons who later circulated it through MMS, the police said.
The police on its own has started an investigation which culminated in today's arrest of five persons following a raid was conducted at some villages in the Rampurhat sub-division.
The police said it has asked the girl to file a police complaint.
