Gang rape shocks India as journalist is attacked on assignment in middle-class Mumbai suburb
NEW DELHI â€" A photojournalist has been gang-raped while working on an assignment in a middle-class suburb of Mumbai.
The 22-year-old victim, a lifestyle magazine intern who was working on her first piece, was attacked on Thursday night. One man was arrested and police are searching for four other suspects.
The attack has reignited the disgust felt by Indians last year when Jyoti Singh Pandey, a 23-year-old student, was gang raped and murdered on a bus in Delhi, which prompted demonstrations and nationwide soul-searching.

The Mumbai victim was with a male colleague in Lower Parel, a former industrial area, when she was harassed by two men who attacked and tied up her male colleague when he objected.
According to police, the woman was dragged into a derelict mill where she was assaulted and raped by five men, believed to be drug addicts. A spokesman said the victim was working on an article about the area. â€œThey were confronted by some men, who asked the woman photographer whether she had permission to take pictures of the mill compound,â€ the spokesman said.
â€œAn argument broke out and the two men started abusing them and they were joined by few more. They assaulted the male and tied him up. They took the victim inside a building and gang-raped her. She was threatened and attacked with broken glass bottles.â€

The woman was reported to be in a stable condition in hospital. She is believed to have undergone a medical procedure for internal injuries but they were not considered serious.
Campaigners for womenâ€™s safety voiced their anger and sense of betrayal that little had been done to stop sexual violence since the Delhi attack in December.
They said that a bill to improve safety for women and guarantee equal rights following the Delhi gang-rape last year had been â€œburied and forgottenâ€, and that there had been a retrenchment in attitudes, with women being blamed for their choice of clothes or accused of making false claims of rape.

Nilanjana Roy, a leading campaigner, said the rape sent a â€œdire message to women of any class who move out and work in public spacesâ€.
Ranjana Kumari, a womenâ€™s rights activist, blamed the government and judiciary for failing to bring rapists to justice. â€œThere is a sense of impunity. The response system is not there, no example of the law being enforced.â€
