    Rape an epidemic in India: Nirbhaya,the Girl who shook India.

    There has been an uproar in India's parliament over the gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a city bus in the capital, Delhi.

    MPs from all parties have expressed their horror at the incident which has caused outrage in the country.

    Police said they have arrested four people, including the bus driver, and are looking for two more people.

    The student and her male friend were beaten, stripped and thrown out of the bus on Sunday evening.

    They have been admitted to hospital, where the woman remains in a critical condition.

    "She continues to be serious. She has responded to us once in the last 12 hours and that is a good sign, but we cannot rule her out of danger. She remains on ventilator," Safdarjung Hospital medical superintendent BD Athani told the BBC Hindi service.

    Delhi's rape figures are far higher than other Indian cities of comparable size, correspondents say.

    According to official statistics, 572 rapes were reported in Delhi last year. Police say they have registered 635 rape cases this year.

    'Hang rapists'


    On Tuesday, angry MPs in both houses set aside the regular business to discuss the gruesome rape case and demanded strict punishment for the criminals.

    Senior leader of the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party Sushma Swaraj called for the death penalty for rapists.

    "What is the government doing to curb rape cases in the capital?" she asked. "The rapists should be hanged, we need tougher laws to stop rapes," she said in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of parliament.

    "I speak for the house when I ask the government to take the strongest measures to curb such incidents," Speaker Meira Kumar said.

    In the Rajya Sabha, the upper house, too, MPs demanded strict action against the rapists.

    "How is it that these rapists think that they'll get away with it?" asked an angry Renuka Chowdhury of the Congress party.

    Added the leader of the Bahujan Samaj Party, Ms Mayawati: "We need to ensure proper investigation, and strict punishment. It's not enough to just arrest them, but action should be so strict that no one should dare to act in such a manner again."

    Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde vowed to make the city safer for its women.

    He said a new committee, headed by the home secretary, "will evaluate what needs to change, based on suggestions made in parliament by the MPs".

    Mr Shinde said that routes used often by women at night would be identified and patrolled at night by police.

    The minister said he would propose to "have this case tried by a fast-track court so that this case does not linger".

    The Delhi police chief Neeraj Kumar told a press conference on Tuesday that the woman and her friend had boarded the bus from Munirka area in south Delhi.

    They got on the bus and bought tickets for 10 rupees (18 cents; 11 pence) each, he said.

    "The victim's male friend fought the attackers bravely, he tried to save his friend, but he was badly beaten up," Mr Kumar said.

    "The woman tried to protect him, she was also beaten up and then taken to the back of the bus where she was gang raped. The two were then thrown out of the bus," he said.

    Women's tales from brutal Delhi

    A 23-year-old girl is savagely attacked and raped by a group of men inside a moving bus and her male friend is beaten up senselessly. Battered and bleeding profusely, they are dumped near an expressway in Delhi, where they are found by a passer-by.

    Another day, another girl raped, another round of outrage. Yet, more than 630 rapes later this year so far, nothing much will really change.

    Doctors treating the girl, a paramedic student, who is on life support at a crowded city hospital are aghast. They say this is the "most grievous" case of rape they have handled.

    "This was much more than rape… They were extensive injuries… It appears that a blunt object had been used repeatedly [by the attackers]," says one.

    Sunday night's incident in India's "rape capital" was gut-wrenchingly brutal even for a city which has become numb to crimes against women.

    The mistreatment and abuse of women is a particular problem in Delhi and northern India. A stiflingly patriarchal social mindset, a brazen culture of political power, a general disdain for law, a largely insensitive police force and a rising population of rootless, lawless migrants are only some of the reasons. There must be many others.

    So if you are a woman - unless you are very rich and privileged - you are more likely to face indignity and humiliation here.

    In this part of the world where I live and work, people blame rapes on pornography, the influence of foreign cultures and women themselves - for wearing Western dresses and going out with male friends. When another incident happens, the indignant headlines, excited TV talk shows, candlelight vigils, promises by authorities and platitudes by politicians return with familiar gusto.

    But nothing really changes for Delhi's women. "It is as if there is a silent conspiracy in this city," a woman friend says, "to keep the women scared." They say they are not safe anywhere, at home, on the streets, on a bus, on the new metro system, nowhere really.

    A friend, who works as a photographer for an international news agency, tells me the story of her life as a Delhi woman. It is infinitely worse for those who are less privileged than her.

    When she was living as a paying guest in an upscale south Delhi neighbourhood a few years ago, a drunk male cook barged into her room at night, yanked at her bed sheet and tried to attack her. The man fled after she screamed.

    "My landlord, a perfectly respectable person on the outside, came up and said I must have been dreaming, that there could not have been an attack. His mother had heard my screams so she believed me. I left the place, and they said they had sacked the cook. When I checked later, I found that the cook had returned and was working," she remembers.

    After she joined salsa classes a few years later, her friends arrived to pick her up for a competition.

    They were waiting for a taxi when a policeman walked up and challenged the boys. "You are hanging out with a loose woman," the policeman grunted. "Give me your parents' numbers, we will tell them."

    When her friends protested, the policeman went up to the landlady and extracted a bribe. "They told her they would file cases against her saying she had rented her place to a suspicious woman without a proper rent agreement."

    One evening, a few years ago, she was walking home from work when a young man sidled up to her and said something very obscene. She asked him to shut up and walked on.

    The man ran after her, stopped her in her tracks, and told her bluntly: "I will pour acid on your face next time you say that." Then he vanished.

    "I came home and began crying. I was scared of going out for the next few days," she says.

    It doesn't help much if a woman is accompanied by a male friend or spouse.

    Another woman friend travelling with a male friend in an auto-rickshaw was waylaid by a group of young boys in a posh neighbourhood a few years ago. They blocked the auto-rickshaw at a crossing, pointed a gun at her friend and shouted abuse at him.

    "They wanted to instigate him, they said he was going out with a prostitute. My friend kept quiet and apologised. They let us go after robbing us," she remembers.

    When my photographer friend travels alone in auto-rickshaw on the city's mean streets, she keeps having real and imaginary conversations on the phone with friends and relatives. She doesn't take an auto-rickshaw if she finds the driver overfriendly. If she takes a taxi, she texts the registration number to a friend. She keeps phone numbers for a handful of "reliable" drivers whom she can count on to take her home.

    Delhi's disdain for its women possibly mirrors the city itself, says a cynical friend and long-time resident.

    A city largely, he says, made up of a deracinated generation of migrants, rich and poor, living in their own worlds in gated neighbourhoods and grimy slums which all make genuine collective action difficult. An ineffective police and a broken justice system make matters worse.

    Delhi gang rape case: Main accused went berserk after victim bit him

    NEW DELHI: Ram Singh, 33, the prime accused in Sunday's gang rape, is a volatile man, known among friends as "Mental," a police source said on Tuesday. During investigation, he is learnt to have told police how he lost control and ended up brutalizing the woman and assaulting her friend.

    "When she resisted and bit his hand, he says, he got very angry. Alcohol and the victims' defiance, made him go berserk. He picked up a rod and hit the two everywhere. His accomplices followed suit," a source said.

    Ram Singh reportedly started picking up fights at the slightest pretext after the death of his wife two years ago. There's an accident case registered against him and he has admitted to being involved in several other brawls. He had also run away with a girl in his neighbourhood, sources said.

    A police officer said the investigating team led by Inspector Anil Sharma had found Ram Singh a cold and remorseless man. "Initially, he denied everything. But when he began to open up, he chose to divulge each detail, with no repentance. Such brutality does not affect him. He tried to destroy evidence by washing the bus with confidence and told his accomplices to not worry, and lie low for some time. He stayed calm when he went and parked the bus in RK Puram, and then took it back to the owner in Noida. The confidence he shows is not of a novice definitely," the officer said.

    It seems that even as the gang was brutalizing the woman by turns, Ram Singh had made a plan to cover their tracks. Sources say Ram Singh decided to strip the victims completely before throwing them out of the bus to leave no trace of incriminating semen or blood. He also kept their mobiles and switched them off. Three mobiles — one belonging to the woman and two to her friend — have now been recovered along with some of their clothes.

    Although police were able to arrest him with his employer's help, Ram Singh showed his shrewd side again by refusing to undergo the test identification parade on Tuesday.

    Police say Ram Singh dropped his accomplices near RK Puram after 10.30pm on Sunday and brought the bus back to Sector 3 in RK Puram. Although his brother Mukesh was initially driving the bus, Ram Singh asked the cleaner, Akshay, to drive it to the garage.

    In the morning, all the accused returned to work on his direction. Akshay and Ram Singh plied the bus on its route. Around 9am, when they realized their crime was all over the news, they took the bus to Rohilla Khurd near Sector 62, Noida and washed it thoroughly to remove bloodstains.

    But Ram Singh's plan went awry when the bus owner, Dinesh Yadav, called him to drive it back. "Police had asked Yadav to ensure Ram Singh came back with the bus. He was tricked into coming to RK Puram, where we arrested him,'' said an investigating officer.

    According to police, the accused used to drive continuously through the day. He would pick up schoolchildren at 8am and drop them before picking office goers from the Malai Mandir area. He brought back students from the south Delhi school at 1pm.

    Sources also pointed out that had the school noticed and reported that the bus they had hired had tinted glasses and was driven by an illiterate person involved in an accident, Ram Singh could have been taken off the roads earlier.

    Police fire water cannon at Delhi gang-rape protest

    NEW DELHI: Indian police fired water cannon Wednesday to break up a demonstration held to protest the gang-rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus, witnesses said.

    The protesters, who gathered outside the residence of New Delhi’s chief minister, could be seen chanting “We want equal rights for women” as police hosed them.

    Lawmakers, rights groups and citizens across India expressed outrage Wednesday over the gang rape of a woman on a bus in New Delhi and are urging the government to crack down on crimes against women.

    The outpouring of anger is unusual in a country where attacks against women are often ignored and rarely prosecuted.

    Opposition lawmakers protested outside Parliament on Wednesday and called for the death penalty for the rapists.

    Demonstrations erupted outside New Delhi’s police headquarters demanding swift punishment for the rapists, and angry university students set up roadblocks across the city.

    Police say six men raped the 23-year-old medical student, and beat her and her companion with iron rods before throwing them off the bus Sunday.

    The woman was in a critical condition in hospital and doctors said she has severe internal injuries.

    Delhi police chief Neeraj Kumar said four men have been arrested and a search was underway for the two other men.

    Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told Parliament that he had ordered increased police patrols on the streets, especially at night. Shinde said the government has proposed amendments to criminal laws to increase the punishment for rapes and other crimes against women. But they are still awaiting discussion and passage in parliament.

    Analysts and protesters said the upsurge of anger was chiefly due to the increasing incidents of crime against women and the seeming inability of the government and police to ensure the safety of women.
