The main suspect in the gang-rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl in Jharkhand who was burnt alive inside her home on Friday, allegedly by men who had raped her a night before, has been arrested. Four men kidnapped the girl from home in Jharkhand's Chatra, raped her, her family says. When the girl's family approached village council, they were told to "settle the issue" with a fine and a few sit-ups against the accused. Enraged, the accused allegedly barged into the girl's home, and set her on fire. Seventeen people have now been arrested. But as we are filled with a sense of deja vu, despair, disgust, we are asking tonight, can India protect its daughters?
