    A gang of rapists tried to use a vehicle to run over the 23-year-old Indian woman who died last week after being brutally raped on a bus, according to police accounts released on Wednesday. Indian prosecutors plan to present the 1,000-page police report in court on Thursday, where five men arrested in the attack are expected to face murder and rape charges. The victim’s boyfriend was allegedly beaten up and thrown off the bus after she was raped, and he managed to pull her away from the moving vehicle. The victim sustained multiple injuries in the attack, including being so severely wounded that her intestine had to be removed. She died in Singapore last week, 13 days after the attack. Her ashes were scattered over the Ganges on Tuesday.
