Women’s safety in the country has been in the spotlight following the brutal gang rape of a young student on a moving bus in New Delhi in December 2012, which led thousands to take to the streets in protest. The woman died of her injuries two weeks later in a Singapore hospital.
The case turned a global spotlight on the treatment of women in India, where police say a rape is reported every 20 minutes. (ANI)
