Inside Tihar Jail, men arrested for raping student are moved to high-security cells

Inside Tihar Jail, men arrested for raping student are moved to high-security cells
New Delhi Five of the six men arrested for the murderous attack on a 23-year-old student in a moving bus are being kept in a high-security part of Tihar Jail in Delhi, a precaution taken after the student died this morning at a hospital in Singapore. Police sources believe that other prisoners are likely to attack the men; they are being kept in cells  with special locks.  

The sixth person arrested is a minor and is at a juvenile home.

Two weeks ago, they assaulted the girl and her male friend with an iron rod on a bus usually used to transport school children. The driver of the bus took it for a spin with his friends, and when they saw the couple waiting on the road side, they pulled up and posed as a chartered bus, commonly used in  Delhi to supplement public transport. After their depraved attack, they dumped the couple on a road.

The girl was assaulted so relentlessly that she had to go through three major surgeries; she also had a cardiac arrest and  what doctors described as "a serious brain injury."

She was flown on an air ambulance to Singapore on Wednesday night.
