Female photographer gang raped in Mumbai

A 23-year-old photographer was gang-raped by five men in the Indian financial hub of Mumbai, police said Friday, the latest shocking report of sexual assault to make headlines in the South Asian nation.

The attack took place Thursday evening in a deserted area of the Shakti Mills district in Mumbai, said the city's police commissioner, Satyapal Singh.

The unidentified female victim and a male colleague were on assignment in the area for a print publication when some of the men approached them and asked if they had permission to take photographs, Singh said.
