Gang Rape of Photo-Journalist In Mumbai, India [Photo]
A young woman working on an assignment to photograph old buildings in Mumbai was raped by five men on Thursday evening in an abandoned textile mill. The incident has continued to draw world wide attention to India’s treatment of women following last year’s fatal gang rape of a physiotherapist in Delhi. The women was accompanied by a young man who was carrying the cameras and later tied up while the men took turns raping the young woman. Ironically, Mumbai has been hailed as a city where women could feel safe on the streets but recent events including an acid attack on a woman last month suggest otherwise. The photo-journalist was taken to Jaslok hospital where she was in stable condition.
