The female student who was subjected to abuse on a bus in New Delhi, is now critically injured in hospital. She was thrown out of the bus after the assault. The man she was with, was seriously injured in the attack Sunday night.
Four people, including the bus driver, has been arrested in the case, but police are still searching for two alleged perpetrators. Three of the suspects appeared in court Wednesday and was remanded in custody.

- Turned and raped
According to the police investigation and other reports rape took place in over 40 minutes behind the bus, which had stopped to take on board the two victims of a theater performance.
They began assaulting the girl. Her companion fought heroically to save her, but the men attacked him with an iron rod, police said Neeraj Kumar.

- The victim was dragged behind the bus and brutally beaten and raped, he said.

New Delhi's police chief asked Tuesday about the death penalty for people convicted of rape, a crime that currently the maximum is punishable by ten years' imprisonment.
Fighting for rights
Wednesday police used water cannons to control a demonstration in New Delhi which was broadcast live on TV. Enraged students tried to tear down steel fences around the official residence of the Prime Minister in the National Capital Area Delhi, Sheila Dikshit.

Sonia Gandhi, considered as India's most powerful politician, visited the hospital where victims of the rough rape is committed. She described the attack as a disgrace to New Delhi and has written letters to the capital area's top political leader.

A young woman, who says she is a student at Delhi University, says it needs a change in attitude among the authorities, who she believes are trying to give the victims blamed for sexual assault.

- Women are told that if they are out late at night, they're going to be raped, the student said in a speech to the protesters.

- As a woman, I would say that we too are people and you have to treat us like human beings. You're going to have to give us equal rights. It is a question of fundamental rights. We have a desire to go out in Delhi at midnight if we will, the woman said.

Widespread Phenomenon
India experienced more than a doubling in the number of rape cases from 1990 to 2008, according to official statistics.
