Mumbai police arrest second man in gang-rape case
MUMBAI (AFP) - Mumbai police arrested a second man on 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.
"Yes, in the night," he confirmed, without giving further details.
