Outrage mounts over Hyderabad rape killing

Outrage is mounting in India after the alleged rape and murder of a 27-year-old vet in the city of Hyderabad.

Thousands protested outside a police station in the city, demanding accountability. Police have suspended three officers.

Rape and sexual violence against women have been in focus in India since the December 2012 gang-rape and murder of a young woman on a bus in the capital, Delhi. But there has been no sign that anti-female violence is abating.

According to the latest government crime figures, police registered 33,658 cases of rape in India in 2017 – an average of 92 every day.
