Mumbai gang rape suspects named in earlier attack: Police
MUMBAI (AFP) - Three of the men accused of gang raping a photographer in Mumbai allegedly raped a teenager in the same spot just weeks earlier, the police said on Friday.
Last month, a 22-year-old photographer told the police she was raped by five men while she was on assignment in an abandoned mill compound in central Mumbai, in a case that reignited anger over violence against women in India.
Sketches of the suspects in that attack were published in the media, prompting a 19-year-old telephone operator to come forward to say she was raped there at the end of July by three of the same men, along with two others, the police said.
Like the photographer, the second woman was attacked when she was out with a male friend who was tied up during the rape, police said.
