Police hunt for six more Indian gang rape suspects
(01-16 16:59)

Indian police carried out raids across New Delhi as they hunted for a further six men wanted over the gang-rape of a Danish tourist.
Police announced the arrest of two homeless men late Wednesday. They are suspected of taking part in the three-hour assault and robbery of the 51-year-old woman Tuesday. She was also beaten and robbed.
“We have already arrested two of the eight suspects in the case and are still carrying out raids across different locations to nab others,'' additional commissioner of Delhi Police Alok Kumar told AFP.
Last month, India marked the first anniversary of the death of a student who was gang-raped on a bus in the capital, know as the rape capital of India, in an attack that sent shockwaves across the nation.
Four men were sentenced to death in September for the attack while a teenager was also convicted and sentenced to three years in detention.
But the number of reported sex crimes continues to rise.
Under a headline proclaiming: ‘Delhi Shamed Again,’ the Hindustan Times newspaper said that the attack undermined police assurances that the capital was becoming a safer place for women.
“The sexual assault of a Danish tourist in the heart of the city has once again exposed the tall claims of Delhi Police that they have taken ample steps to ensure the safety of foreigners,'' said the newspaper.
