Indian rapist caged for beastly acts against Spanish woman in Mumbai
(12-27 16:05)

A court in India sentenced a man to life in jail after convicting him of raping a 26-year-old Spanish woman at her house in Mumbai last year.
The court sentenced Md Badsha Ansari to life imprisonment for rape and sodomy, apart from three years in prison for criminal intimidation and one year for theft.
The horrific rape shook Mumbai in November last year when the man broke into the Spanish national's house in posh Bandra area in the wee hours, and then raped her, before decamping with cash and valuables.
The Spanish musician had identified the accused during an identification parade, after the Mumbai police formed eight teams and nabbed the man.
Rapes of foreign nationals are not uncommon in India.
Early this year, a Swedish woman was gang raped while she was on cycling tour in the jungles in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, along with her husband.—Xinhua
