New Delhi: In a shocking incident that brought disgusting memories of the Delhi gangrape incident, an eleven year old girl was raped in a chartered bus in Sultanpur area of the national capital. Police has arrested the bus driver. Further details are awaited.
In December 2012, a 23-year-old female physiotherapy intern was beaten and gang raped in a bus in which she was travelling with her male companion. There were only six others in the bus, including the driver, all of whom raped the woman. The woman died from her injuries thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in Singapore.
After the rape, public protests against the Government of India and the Government of Delhi for not providing adequate security for women took place in New Delhi, where thousands of protesters clashed with security forces. Similar protests took place in major cities throughout the country.
The incident has once again revealed the vulnerablity of women.
