In a grim reminder of the horrific Delhi gang rape. A woman, who was travelling on a Delhi-bound train with a relative, was allegedly raped by the driver and conductor, then taken by motorbike from the train and left hanging from a tree until she was dead. In the Bhagalpur district of India's eastern Bihar state. Please be warned this footage contains graphic material.

According to local media reports she was dragged to an orchard and raped by unidentified persons, who were drunk. She was later strangled to death. A local police officer said 6 men have been arrested and the victim has been identified. So far the police have only registered a case of murder.

The incident comes within weeks of the rape of a 23-year-old student in Delhi who was assaulted and beaten in a moving bus and thrown bleeding onto the street in a case that sparked outrage in the country. And these women seen here are protesting for better security for women and staging a candle lit vigil.
