Police in a suburb of the Indian capital, Delhi, have arrested two men in connection with the alleged gang rape of a 19-year-old girl. The girl was traveling in an auto rickshaw in Ghaziabad when at least two of her co-passengers allegedly raped her, a senior police official said. Police say they are looking for a third suspect. The teenager had taken an auto rickshaw home from near a busy mall in Indirapuram in Ghaziabad. According to reports, the girl told the police that she was gagged, raped, robbed and thrown out of the vehicle near a highway.
Last week, there were violent protests in Delhi after reports that a seven-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at a school. The principal and four employees of the municipal school have been suspended in connection with the case.
There has also been angry debate in the parliament over last month's rape and murder of three sisters, aged six to 11, in the state of Maharashtra. No-one has been arrested and opposition MP's have criticized the slow pace of the investigation.
