In India, a 23-year-old rape survivor was assaulted and set on fire by her alleged rapists while she was on her way to her court hearing in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The two alleged rapists and three other men have been arrested on suspicion of setting her on fire. She had filed a lawsuit against the two men in March. She is now in critical condition in the hospital. The attack comes less than two weeks after India was rocked by another case in the southern city of Hyderabad, in which a 27-year-old woman was raped and set on fire, sparking widespread protests against violence against women in India.
