One man arrested in gang-rape of Mumbai photographer
MUMBAI (AFP) - Five men gang-raped a female photographer in India's financial hub Mumbai, police said Friday, fuelling anger and stirring memories of a similar attack last December in New Delhi.
The latest incident occurred Thursday evening in an isolated part of an upmarket, centrally located district of Mumbai where the 23-year-old woman, accompanied by a male colleague, was taking photos of old buildings for a magazine, a police officer told AFP.
"The men beat up the man, tied him up and raped the woman in a secluded part of the Shakti Mills area," the officer said, requesting anonymity.
The victim, reportedly an intern, is undergoing treatment at Mumbai's Jaslok Hospital and preliminary reports suggest multiple internal injuries, the officer told AFP. A hospital statement said she was "stable".
