Indians are once again outraged by yet another rape. This time it was a group assault on a young woman in the heart of Mumbai, the country’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. This new wave of anger and protesting comes just eight months after a New Delhi woman died of injuries sustained from a gang rape.
