Mumbai police formally charged five male suspects in court Thursday over the gang-rape of a young photographer in the city last month, a case that reignited anger about women's safety in India.
Four adult accused, arrested within days of the attack, appeared at the Esplanade Court in Mumbai, barefooted and looking dishevelled. One wore a T-shirt and jeans while the rest were in shirts and trousers.
They were charged with at least five offences including gang-rape, unnatural sex, illegal confinement, destruction of evidence, and conspiracy over the attack on August 22.
