In 2012, rapists abused 23-year-old Jyoti Singh, who subsequently died.
In India, seven years after a high-profile case of a gang rape of a female student on a bus in Delhi, four men were executed and found guilty.
According to Deutsche Welle, the perpetrators were hanged in Tihar prison. A few hours earlier, the country's Supreme Court had dismissed their defense appeal. Before the verdict, a crowd gathered outside the prison to demand the execution of therapists.
The rape of a 23-year-old medical female student, Jyoti Singh, was one of the loudest in modern Indian history.
On December 16, 2012, the girl was returning from a movie with her 28-year-old boyfriend Avindra Pandi. In Delhi, they took the bus, but soon the driver deviated from the route. When a girl's friend said so, a gang attacked them and beat them up. In the process, Jyoti was raped and tortured with an iron bar. 45 minutes later, a naked and bloody couple was thrown outside, and a few days later the girl died in hospital.
The case triggered mass protests in India, demanding that the perpetrators of the crime be punished and that the frequent cases of rape in the country be addressed.
And last month, people in India protested against the facilitation of citizenship for non-Muslims.
