Pakistani police have arrested 12 people - including members of a village council, elders and relatives - for ordering a man to rape a girl in revenge for the rape of his sister.
Police officer Rehmat Ali said the 12 were brought before a court, which allows police to investigate them for a week without bail.
He said that following the rape of a village girl, the family of the alleged rapist, Wasim Saeed of Pirmahal, in the Punjab province, sought pardon from the girl's family.
Both sides agreed to reconcile on the condition of a "revenge rape" of the suspected rapist's sister.
Such revenge assaults, called "wani", are still being practised in some parts of rural areas of Pakistan, though they are banned by law.
