Indian officials promise swift justice in Mumbai gang-rape case
MUMBAI (AFP) - Indian officials on Monday promised swift justice over the gang-rape of a young photographer in Mumbai, as the final suspect appeared in court over the attack that sparked angry protests.
Five men have been arrested on suspicion of raping the 22-year-old woman in central Mumbai on Thursday when she was on assignment for a magazine with a male colleague.
The attack reignited widespread anger at the treatment of women in India that first erupted in December after the fatal gang-rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus in New Delhi.
"We will submit a charge sheet in a court of law as soon as possible and the case will be done in a fast-track court," Mumbai's police commissioner Satyapal Singh told reporters.
