Is There No Safe Place For India's Women?

Hundreds of people have protested in the Indian state of Goa after a seven-year-old girl was raped in a school toilet.  The headmistress has been detained on charges of negligence in Vasco town.

There has been growing outrage over the treatment of women in India and calls for tougher laws after the gang-rape and torture of a woman in December.

The rape in Goa was discovered after the victim complained of pain and was medically examined, according to reports.  The police are now looking for the suspect after making a sketch from a description given by the victim.

Parents and local residents held a protest outside the school when news of the rape came out.  "We will not spare the accused and anyone involved in this crime," Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said.
