India !!!! Whats wrong with you people...

Clearly this news is important enough to dedicate a front page story! However, no information about the fact that arrests have been made and pressure is being applied to make sure that justice is served. Yes, that would make this balanced and then nobody would read it. Better to leave that unsaid.

Really bad and it seems it's getting out of control in India - culprits should be punished in public to make example for rest of the society.

It is being common in India. Don't why Indian Government is not taken strong action to control such ridiculous activities. offender of such crime should be punished in fist hearing without late and mercy.

@Khurram Jadoon: Stone them to death

It's funny to see that there are no comments from Indians who otherwise are very active on these comments pages. India requires another century to be considered a developed country with these incidents happening as a daily routine.

India seriously needs to take a major step here to stop such henious crimes. I personally dont know how these criiminals or animals I should say can live with such acts.... they should be sentenced to most severe punishment possible.

Do stone them to death... Really looking forward to reading comments of our Indian friends...

Indians have developed advanced techniques of rapes. Foreign girls to underage are being targetted and new improved ways. The men are also very social and peaceful that they share girls with each other without a bullet fired. I wonder with what hands do the rest of them type so many negative comments about their neighbors. I am ashamed to be from Indian sub-contenant and understand when my Indians friends claimed to from Pakistan these days.

This is the result when Bollywood shows vulgarity stay day in and day out in the name of entertainment. When men and women mix openly without hijaab and when it is cheaper to do Zina (fornication) while expensive to marry (nikah). And to top it you have the devils system of justice that maybe gives a few years prison for rape.

India Blackening or India Shining; you decide.

What's wrong is the fact that, India is not a natural country and people of different nations value ethics and morality differently. India needs to be broken in several countries then it will progress separately and this menace to women will stop

@Zaryab: We have given too much freedom to press and rapists, that is our problem, currently we are bothered about GDP, 2014 elections and secularism, that is our problem, and dont worry we will not leave this, sooner or later we will crackdown this minace.
