Police have arrested the last of five men wanted in the gang rape of a photojournalist in Mumbai and said that charges would be filed soon in a case that has fueled debate over whether women can be safe in India
The victim, a 22-year-old Indian woman, said that she was anxious to return to work after the assault, in which five men repeatedly raped her while her male colleague was beaten and tied up in an abandoned textile mill. A statement from Jaslok Hospital said that she is "much better" and is being visited by family. Police arrested the fifth suspect in New Delhi, after rounding up the other four in Mumbai.
