0

MUMBAI: Mumbai police arrested a second man Saturday on accusations of gang-raping a female photographer in the Indian financial hub, an attack that has renewed anger over the country’s treatment of women. Echoing a similar assault in New Delhi in December that sparked nationwide protests, five men gang-raped a woman in her early twenties in central Mumbai when she was on a magazine assignment with a male colleague on Thursday evening. Officers arrested the first suspect, in his early twenties, on Friday and a second arrest was made overnight, police spokesman Satyanarayan Choudhary told AFP. The attack, which shocked a city seen as far safer for women than the capital, sparked outrage on social media sites, uproar in the Indian parliament and a protests in Mumbai led by journalists.
