There is a worldwide outrage as a 72-year-old nun in India who tried to prevent an attack on her school was gang-raped by eight men.
The nun who is the head of the Convent of Jesus and Mary School, was hospitalized after the sordid incident.
The police say they have declared a manhunt for the men who perpetrated the act in a country where rape has been taken to another level.
The police say that the robbers tied up the guards of the school with ropes and entered the room of the nuns, where women were sleeping.
But the unnamed nun tried to block their way into the hostels and this got them angry and they took her to another room and took turns raping her, before escaping with some cash, a mobile phone, a laptop computer and a camera, all belonging to the school. They also destroyed sacred items.
