Indian tribal residents collect dry tea bushes to be used for firewood at the Dagapur tea garden on the outskirts of Siliguri in the eastern state of West Bengal on January 23, 2014. Indian police have arrested 13 people after a woman was allegedly gang-raped on orders from tribal village elders who objected to her relationship with a man, an officer said. The attack took place in a remote village in West Bengal state, where the unmarried woman from the Santhal tribal group was suspected of a relationship with a Muslim man from another village. The incident again highlighted India's dismal record on preventing sexual violence, after the fatal gang-rape of a student in New Delhi in December 2012 sparked angry protests about the treatment of women.
