Uproar in Rajya Sabha over Delhi gang rape
There was chaos inside the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanding discussion on the brutal and horrific case of gang rape in Delhi.
The opposition, which is demanding Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's statement on the unfortunate incident, has given notice for suspension of Question Hour.
Amid din, Rajya Sabha chairman Mohammad Hamid Ansari adjourned the upper house for 15 minutes.
Delhi Police has arrested three of six men who allegedly gang-raped the medical student and beat her brutally in a bus in Delhi on Sunday evening.
The bus driver, identified as Ram Singh, and his brother are among those arrested.
The victim, who is a para-medical student in Uttarakhand and is in the capital for her internship, was battling for life at the Safdarjung Hospital where she was rushed late on Sunday night after the untoward incident.
Delhi Police on Sunday said both the victim and her male friend, who had boarded the chartered bus with tinted glass windows from Munirka in South Delhi around 9: 45 p.m. to Palam, were assaulted with an iron rod by the men after the two resisted before they were dumped on the road side near Mahipalpur flyover.
The unfortunate incident has sparked outrage with leaders of various political outfits condemning the act.
