Water cannons and tear gas were used by police against the protesters to disperse them at Raisina Hill, close to Rashtrapati Bhavan. Police resorted to lathi charge as angry protestors clashed with them at Raisina Hill. Protestors on Saturday gathered at India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhavan to demand justice for the 23-year old gangrape victim.


Thousands of people protesting against the torture of the girl in a moving bus and demanding safety for women converged at India Gate and marched towards Rashtrapati Bhavan here Saturday.

The rape victim is currently battling for her life in a hospital.

The protesters started arriving at the site since early morning, and were soon joined by former army chief Gen. V.K. Singh.

They then began marching towards the high-security Rashtrapati Bhavan on Raisina Hill but were stopped by security personnel, who had put up barricades.

Police have arrested all the six accused in the case but public anger has been swelling against the incident.
