Four Convicted in Mumbai Gang Rape

Four men have been convicted in Mumbai for the gang rape of a photographer in August 2013, and will be sentenced on Friday. A fifth male involved is reportedly underage and is being tried in a juvenile court. The 22-year-old victim was an intern with an English magazine in Mumbai and had gone to an abandoned textile mill with a male colleague on a photo assignment when she was attacked. Her colleague was also beaten during the assault. “The verdict will send a message to the other offenders. It will be a deterrent,” declared the region’s home minister, RR Patil.
