Outcry in India over rape attacks

Spate of sexual assaults in New Delhi district prompts campaign to make streets safe for women.

    In India, a series of attacks on women in a New Delhi suburb have led to new efforts to protect them.

    The latest official figures show the capital has had the largest number of reported rape cases in the country. 

    The issue has prompted numerous demonstrations and other initiatives to report areas with a high number of crimes not just to police, but politicians as well.

    Police in Gurgoan, a suburb that has been a centre of crimes against women in New Delhi, say they are developing a plan to provide more security in order to help solve the problem. 

    Sohail Rahman reports from Gurgoan on public campaigns launched to ensure women their right to live and move around safely.
