India delhi rape protests dec 2012 1

Indian students and activists carry candles at India Gate during a protest following the gang-rape of a student in New Delhi on December 19, 2012. Indian police December 17 arrested the driver of a bus a day after a student was gang-raped and thrown out of the vehicle, reports said, in an attack that has sparked fresh concern for women's safety in New Delhi. The attack sparked new calls for greater security for women in New Delhi, which registered 568 rapes in 2011 compared with 218 in India's financial capital Mumbai the same year.
