INDIA – December 16, 2012; A 23 year old student was gang raped and thrown of a bus on Sunday in New Delhi India. The attack has sparked fresh concern for the safety of women in the city.

The woman, accompanied by a male friend, boarded a bus Sunday night and was attacked by at least four men and gang-raped, police said. The victim’s companion was battered with iron rods before the men took turns and raped her, police officials said.

The couple were then thrown off the moving bus, seriously injuring the woman, they said.

“When they boarded the bus, there were a few other men as well in the vehicle,” area police chief Chhaya Sharma told reporters.

“As of now, we can confirm the involvement of four men,” she said, adding police artists have drawn sketches of the attackers from descriptions given by the victims. Some media reports said staff of the bus were involved in the attack.

Sharma said the female victim was in intensive care in a city hospital where her companion is also being treated.

The attack sparked new calls for greater security for women in New Delhi, which registered 568 rapes in 2011 compared to 218 in India’s financial capital Mumbai the same year.

Rape cases in India more than doubled between 1990 and 2008, according to official data.
