A medical student was allegedly gangraped in a private bus in the Vasant Vihar area of southwest Delhi on Sunday night. This comes as yet another incident of violence against women highlighting how unsafe the national capital region has become.

According to reports, the girl and a male friend had boarded a private bus around 11 pm from Munirka in south Delhi. He was going to drop the girl at her residence in Dwarka. However this did not prove to be too much protection, as a group of men first attacked the boy with rods, following which five men allegedly gangraped the girl, reported NDTV.
