Victims of a gang rape in India's Jharkhand state arrive to be interviewed by police.
On Monday, a group of around 15 armed men stormed a local hostel, abducting four teen girls and then raping them in a field nearby.
The girls were between 12 and 14 years old and enrolled in a vocational course.
Police say the men responsible come from a neighbouring village, and that some fled when officers arrived.
Sex crimes are common in India, with the brutal rape of a woman in New Dehli last year garnering world-wide outrage.
The 23-year-old victim later died of her injuries.
The case sparked unprecedented protests across cities in India, and shone a global spotlight on violence against women in the country.
