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 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.
