Protests in India after woman gang raped and burned to death
The charred body of the 26-year-old woman was found on the outskirts of the southern city of Hyderabad on Wednesday night. The woman’s scooter tyres had allegedly been deflated by four men, who then sat waiting in a lorry nearby and approached her to offer help. Her body was found at 5am by a resident of nearby Chatanpally village who noticed smoke. In Delhi, one woman who staged a protest outside parliament on Saturday said she was beaten by police after she refused to move. “The only purpose of this protest is to ensure that I am not burned to death tomorrow,” she said.
