“We are aware that this is not the first case, nor will it be the last case of gang-rape in India, but it is clear that we will not tolerate sex crimes any more,” said Bela Rana, a lawyer who joined a rally in central Delhi.

However, yesterday’s Hindustan Times said more than 20 women had been raped in New Delhi since Dec. 16 and the Press Trust of India news agency reported another alleged murder and gang-rape yesterday in the state of West Bengal.

According to police and prosecutors, the ordeal suffered by the victim of the Delhi crime began when six men lured her and her boyfriend onto a bus that they thought would take them home. Instead, the group launched an attack lasting about 40 minutes that ended when the victims were thrown off the bus.
