FOUR CONVICTED IN INDIAN JOURNALIST RAPE CASE

Date:

A court in the Indian city of Mumbai has convicted four men of the gang rape of a photojournalist last year.

The men have been found guilty of five offences, including gang rape, unnatural sex and destruction of evidence. The sentencing is set for Friday.

The 22-year-old woman was attacked by five men while on assignment in a deserted mill in August.

The fifth accused, believed to be under 18 at the time of the incident, is being tried in a juvenile court.

In India, where a rape is recorded every 22 minutes, scrutiny of sexual violence has grown since the gang rape and murder of a student on a bus in Delhi in December 2012.

The attack on the Mumbai photojournalist had renewed public outrage over sexual violence in the country.
