A 16-year-old girl, a student of Class 8, was reportedly raped by eight men twice, filmed and blackmailed with videos of the sexual assault to pay Rs 2.5 lakh in Rajasthan’s Bhiwadi.

“She paid up to Rs 50,000 in cash because they blackmailed her by saying they will release her videos. When she failed to do so [at one point], they forwarded an objectionable video of hers to another person on WhatsApp,” the report quoted an official as saying.
