Indian authorities on Thursday said they will seek the death penalty against five men accused of raping and fatally beating a woman on a bus in the country’s capital, an attack that has sparked a wave of protests over the mistreatment of women.
Authorities also said they have established a special fast-track court to expedite the cases of the men, who face a host of charges including murder, rape, kidnapping and destruction of evidence. The 23-year-old victim died Saturday at a Singapore hospital of severe internal injuries suffered in the attack.
