Female Journalist Gang Raped in Mumbai
A young photojournalist was gang raped while her male colleague was tied up and beaten in India’s business hub of Mumbai, police said Friday. The case was reminiscent of the December gang rape and death of a young university student in the Indian capital that shocked the country.
Police said the woman was on assignment to take pictures of an abandoned textile factory in south Mumbai late Thursday when five men confronted her with an offer to help her get permission to shoot inside the building.
Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh told reporters that the men tied her colleague’s hands with a belt while she was gang raped.
The woman, 22, is in stable condition in hospital.
