DELHI, India (WCMH) — Outrage is growing in India after a horrifying rape leaves a 7 year-old fighting for her life.
The girl remains hospitalized after she was raped with a metal water pipe in India.
This is the latest in a string of shocking attacks in India.
Together they are leading to calls for more stringent and quickly applied punishments.
In 2012, six men raped a woman on a bus she was taking with her male companion while beating her with an iron rod.
She later died of her injuries.
In May the body of an 8-year-old Muslim girl was found after she had been gang raped and strangled.
Three police officers and a former government official were among the eight Hindu men arrested.
That same month, police announced they had arrested a primary suspect in the gang rape and killing of a 16-year-old girl in the northeast of the country.
The man arrested was one of 20 accused in the attack.
Weeks later a man in the same state raped a 17-year-old in her relative’s home before setting her on fire.
