Disabled woman raped and murdered in India

Rape and murder is becoming so rampant in India and the citizens want the government to do something about it.

A 28-year-old woman from Naples, India, has been raped and murdered by an unknown attacker in the city of Rohtak, sparking off a spate of violent protests across the country.

An autopsy carried out on the woman showed that she had been horrifically mutilated by her attacker with stones and blades reportedly forced into her during the horrifying assault.

The Mirror UK reports that the savage rape of the 'intellectually disabled' woman is the latest of a number of shocking attacks that have caused revulsion across India, and has led to fresh protests over sexual violence in the country.

Her body was later dumped in a field in northern India, the latest in a long line of shocking recent rapes and murders of women.

The dead woman disappeared on February 1 in Rohtak in northern Haryana state with her body found three days later next to a road.

She had been living with her sister at the time and undergoing treatment at a hospital, police said.

In 2012, a brutal gang-rape and killing on a bus in New Delhi led to a massive public outcry.
