Men accused of gang-raping same woman for second time in three years

Men accused of gang-raping same woman for second time in three years

Police in northern India have arrested two men for allegedly raping a young woman for a second time in three years after she refused to withdraw a complaint against them.

Senior police officer Sanjay Kumar Singh said the woman, in her early 20s, is in stable condition in hospital.

The woman was allegedly first raped in 2013.

Three men were arrested, and two were freed on bail pending the outcome of a trial. Mr Singh said those two raped the woman again on July 13 in a town in Haryana state.

The incident highlights the persistence of violence against women in India despite a public outcry following the 2012 gang rape of a woman aboard a bus in New Delhi that led to stronger laws against sexual assault.
