Death penalty will be sought in gang rape incident that resulted in victim's death

New Delhi residents braved wintery weather to march in protest of a gang rape that resulted in the death of a 23-year-old woman last week.

The Wednesday march was called by the city's Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who attended with members of her cabinet and continued to draw followers as they wound through the city.

Dikshit—and the central government—have themselves been the target of protest over women's safety in the wake of the incident.
