With shocking stories of rapes pouring in from across India despite a nationwide outrage over the Delhi girl's gangrape, one more came from central Indian state of Chhattisgarh, media reports said Sunday.

Reports said some tribal girls were raped over a period in a hostel in Chhattisgarh´s Narharpur.

A peon of the hostel has been arrested while a teacher is absconding, reports said.

The state government has ordered a high level probe.

Men, women and children came out on the streets of India since the brutal gangrape of a Delhi paramedical student on Dec 16 who eventually died in a Singapore hospital despite all efforts to revive her after the unspeakable torture she was subjected to on a moving bus by six men.

Her death left the nation in a state of mourning and churning as the collective anger of people found new expressions in clamour for change and justice to curb rapes.
