Five arrested in gang rape of photojournalist in India
August 26 , 2013
All five men wanted in the gang rape of a 22-year old journalist in India have been busted by the cops. The police had been under pressure to hunt down the suspects.
This case fueled anger and debate over the safety of women in India. The victim said she is anxious to go back to work and that "rape is not the end of life." She was raped Thursday night as her male colleague was beaten and tied up in the isolated building.
The hospital has said she is doing better and is being visited by family. Mumbai's police commissioner said they are filing charges soon. The government has encouraged a harsh punishment for the rapists. The five men are likely to face prosecution under the stricter law, which has set the prison term for the crime to 20 years.
