Delhi gang-rape: victim's friend, also on bus, gives statement in court
New Delhi: The young man, who tried to protect his friend from a group of drunk and leering men on a bus, is sharing his version of what happened in a Delhi court.

When the men turned on him with an iron rod, striking his head over and over, his friend tried to save him.

Furious, the six men began hitting her. Then they took turns raping her while one of them kept the bus circling on South Delhi's roads. The tinted windows of the privately-owned bus concealed the horror unfolding within.

She is on ventilator support in hospital, fighting for her life. He has been helping the police with its investigation, and is likely to help at an identification parade tomorrow at Delhi's Tihar Jail.

Two of the six men accused of attempted murder and rape are still missing. Of the other four, one has agreed to participate in the identification parade.

The unimaginable contours of the crime and the plight of the woman ,now struggling to survive, has outraged Delhi, a city where women are used to fending for themselves.

Parliament has demanded an exigent course correction for the sort of protection available in Delhi for women. Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has said that in addition to asking for daily court hearings and a fast-track trial in this case, effective immediately, more police teams will patrol the streets of Delhi at night. Vehicles with groups of men will be screened and searched. Buses are being asked to drive at night with their interior lights switched on.

Vehicles with tinted windows will be impounded immediately, he said.

But what many parliamentarians want is stricter punishment for rapes, where the conviction rate is startling low. Sushma Swaraj, leader of the opposition, wants the death penalty for rapists. Mr Shinde said a proposal to introduce more severe penalties including life imprisonment for sexual crimes has been introduced in the Lok Sabha.

New Delhi: The police said the men were looking for some fun. They had been drinking, having a party, and decided to go on a joy ride. They began circling the capital in a private bus, the police said, when they spotted a couple looking for a ride home. They waved the man and woman onboard and charged them each 36 cents.

And then, the police said, the men beat the couple with an iron rod and repeatedly raped the woman as the bus circled the city. The woman suffered severe injuries to her head and intestines and required multiple operations, local news media reported, indicators of an assault so savage that New Delhi on Tuesday was shaking with public outrage. Protesters encircled a police station and blocked a major highway. India's Parliament erupted in angry protests and condemnation.

"A terrible, terrible atrocity has happened," Renuka Chowdhury, a Member of Parliament, said Tuesday during a raucous session in the upper house. "I am not going to allow this incident to become another statistic."
