ICYMI: Rape Victim dies after she was burnt by her rapists

Intro

A 23-year-old rape victim who was set on fire by a gang of men, which included her alleged rapists, has been confirmed dead in a New Delhi hospital, prompting protests from opposition leaders who blamed the ruling party for failing to check incidents of violence against women.

According to reports, the woman was on her way to board a train in Unnao district of northern Uttar Pradesh state to attend a court hearing over her rape when she was doused with kerosene and set on fire on Thursday, according to police.

 

She was transferred to New Delhi for treatment later that day. The attack, the second major case of violence against women in the past two weeks, has sparked public outrage in India.
