32 year old Indian woman from the state of West Bengal was reportedly abducted and sexually violated while travelling on a train to New Delhi with her 10 year old son. After the rape, the woman was reportedly strangled and then hanged from a tree. Recent spike in sexual attacks on women has caused a lot of public outrage and calls for severe punishments in India.
This fatal gang rape happened less than a month after another highly publicised rape which reportedly took place on a private bus in Delhi, and a day after yet another gang rape in the state of Punjab. The half naked corpse of the woman was found by locals, her clothes were a few meters away from her body.
The reports by eye witnesses on how the woman left the train vary quite a bit. Some claim the perpetrators activated the emergency brake and forced the woman off the train, others say the woman jumped the moving train to avoid an imminent attack and the perps followed, and yet others say she alighted the train at a Bhagalpur station on her own devices.
Authorities found liquor bottles in the orchid where the woman is believed to have been raped so an assumption was made that the attackers were drunk. Indian men have all the fun.
