A five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by five persons in Assam's Karbi Anglong district and all the accused were arrested on Sunday. The girl was picked up by five persons from her aunt's home at Chirkangnap village on Saturday morning.

"She was then taken to a nearby jungle and five persons raped her. After committing the crime, they threatened the girl of dire consequences if she informed anyone," a police officer said.
