Photographer gang-raped in Mumbai: police

 

A woman photographer gang-raped by five men in India's financial hub Mumbai, police said, stirring memories of a similar incident eight months ago in New Delhi which triggered nationwide protests. The latest incident took place late Thursday night in an isolated part of a central upmarket district of Mumbai where the 23-year-old woman was doing a magazine story on old buildings in the area with a male colleague, a police officer told. "The attackers have beat and tied up the man and raped the woman in a secluded part of the Shakti Mills area," the police sources told. The woman is admited to the city hospital where she is undergoing treatment and has identified two of the accused by their first names, which she heard them calling each other, police sources said. Hospital officials were not immediately available for comment, but preliminary reports suggested the victim sustained multiple internal injuries, the police officer added. In December, a 23-year-old woman was savagely attacked and gang-raped by five men in a moving bus in New Delhi, and later died from her injuries. Her male companion was also beaten. "A case has been registered but no arrests have been made. Several suspects were pulled up for interrogation," the officer said..
