PATNA: A teenager was strangled to death after being allegedly raped in a Bihar village. The police have arrested three people, including the main accused in the case.

"A woman went to a farm near her village to pick wood with her daughter on Thursday evening. Her daughter felt thirsty and went to a nearby hand pump to drink water. A young man in a nearby house saw her and forcibly pulled her into his house," police said.

The deceased's mother informed the police when her daughter didn't come back.
