Indian rape victim set on fire
All five men have been arrested and are being questioned.
An Indian woman was in a critical condition on Thursday after allegedly being set on fire by two men she had accused of rape as she travelled to give evidence against them in court, police said.
The victim told police that she was attacked by the two men and three others on her way to the court hearing in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, in the latest gruesome case of violence against women in the country.
All five men have been arrested and are being questioned, police officer Suvendra Kumar Bhagat said. The woman has been airlifted to Delhi for medical treatment.
The incident came to light with India still reeling over a brutal gang-rape and murder of a female vet in the southern city of Hyderabad last week. - AFP
