Protesters call for action after woman gang-raped and killed in India

Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan lamented that she had to raise the issue of assault on women so many times in the House. Police have suspended three officers.

Hundreds of people gathered in New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and other Indian cities on Monday to demand justice in the case of a veterinarian who was gang-raped and killed last week. "I have a daughter too", one told The Press Trust of India.

According to police, they trapped the victim by deflating one of the tyres of her scooty when she had reached the toll gate around 9 p.m.to pick up her vehicle which she had parked earlier before boarding a cab to visit a dermatologist in the city.

The vet, who can not be named, was allegedly abducted on Wednesday night after she left her scooter near an expressway toll booth, according to the police.

The burnt body of the veterinary doctor was found at Shadnagar outskirts in Telangana's Ranga Reddy district last week.

Rao, who faced flak for his silence on the shocking incident, asked the officials to take measures to set up a fast track court to deal with the case, it said.

Meanwhile, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal sat on an indefinite hunger strike at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday against the recent incidents of rape.

Four men, all lorry workers, aged between 20 and 24, were arrested on November 29 on charges of raping and killing the woman by smothering her and later burning the body.

While many shared the view of Jaya Bachchan and felt that this was the method that the country had to implement to stop the rapes, many people have criticized him for his illogical statements.

She also questioned the security arrangements in the area and that a similar incident took place in Hyderabad just a day before the horrendous crime happened. Instead, they reportedly asked if the woman had a boyfriend and was in regular touch with men, and sought to know her phone habits. "What has happened? How they have tackled it and how far justice has been done to these people?"

India's judiciary has come under fire for several years over its treatment of sexual violence cases, including of victim shaming and failing to appropriately punish perpetrators.

Several countries, including the U.S., have issued a travel advisory to their citizens travelling to India warning them to exercise increased caution due to rapes and other problems.
