Death of rape claims woman
AN ALLEGED rape victim in northern India who was set on fire on her way to a court hearing in the case has died in a hospital in New Delhi.
The woman was attacked in Uttar Pradesh, by a gang including two of the five men she had accused of gang-rape last year who were on bail.
Five men were arrested in connection with the fire attack.
The 23-year-old woman suffered extensive injuries and was airlifted from Uttar Pradesh to Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi, where she died of cardiac arrest. Politicians have criticised the way the woman was left without police protection after the men were bailed.
