Wave of crime against women continues in India's biggest state

LUCKNOW - A woman was hanged from a tree in India's state of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday and another allegedly raped in a police station, police said, the latest in a wave of crime against women in the country's most populous region over the past two weeks.


"The sub-inspector accused of committing the rape of the woman has been put under arrest while we have launched a manhunt for the three constables accused of being party to the crime," a spokesman at state police headquarters said.


In total, five rapes were reported in 36 hours in the state. (Reuters)
