Photojournalist,22, Gang Raped In Mumbai, Sustained Internal Injuries, 5 Men Accused

Photojournalist, 22, is gang-raped in Mumbai while male colleague is tied up and beaten

  • Victim and colleague were on assignment to photograph abandoned factory
  • Five men initially offered to help, but then became aggressive
  • They tied up the victim’s colleague with a belt then took turns raping her
  • In contrast to Delhi, Mumbai has been seen as a safe place for women

A young photojournalist was gang raped while her male colleague was tied up and beaten in India’s business hub of Mumbai, police said.

The case has brought back bad memories of the December gang rape and death of a young university student in the Indian capital that shocked the country.

The attack took place in an abandoned textile mill in Lower Parel, a gritty former industrial district that is now one of the city’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods of luxury apartments, malls and bars.

The woman was working on an assignment with a male colleague to take pictures of the factory last night when five men confronted the pair.

After initially offering to help her get permission to shoot inside the building, they became aggressive and accused the male colleague of being involved in a local crime.

When he denied any involvement they tied his hands with a belt and took the woman to another part of the building compound and took turns raping her, said Mumbai’s Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh.

The police chief said officers have already arrested one suspect over the attack and he has named and identified the other four.

The woman, 22, is in stable condition in a hospital.

The assault comes amid heightened concerns about sexual violence in India.

The gang rape and death of the student on a bus in New Delhi in December had shaken a country long inured to violence against women and sparked protests demanding better protection for women.

In response, the government passed a new stringent law increasing prison terms for rape and making voyeurism, stalking, acid attacks and the trafficking of women punishable under criminal law.

The trials of the four men and one juvenile accused of the December attack are expected to conclude within the next three weeks.

The verdict on the juvenile suspect is set for August 31. Closing arguments in the trial of the four adult suspects started on Thursday.

The police have released sketches of the suspects wanted over yesterday’s attack based on descriptions given by the woman and her colleague, and have formed several teams to track them.

Commissioner Singh said the area where the attack took place was very isolated and the men may have been local drug dealers.

The attack was discussed in India’s Parliament, where junior Home Minister R.P.N. Singh told lawmakers that the government had asked the state of Maharashtra, of which Mumbai is the capital, for a detailed report on the attack.

About 1,000 people, including members of several local journalists’ associations, gathered this evening in south Mumbai to stage a silent protest. Some wore black armbands, while others carried placards reading ‘Stop rape’ and ‘City of shame’.

In contrast to Delhi, Mumbai has long been considered a safer place for women to travel alone, even at night.

‘(Mumbai) has this sense of security … but these things make us feel that maybe we are not really that safe,’ said A. L. Sharada, director of Population First, an NGO that works on women’s rights issues.

‘Women should be able to move freely and take up work. Why should we be worrying about something bad happening to us all the time?’ Ms Sharada added.

Commissioner Singh said the federal government had recommended that the ‘harshest’ punishment be handed down to anyone found guilty in the case.

Yoko Ono Live Art Show In India Doesn’t Wow Some People

Blog Article: Japan Today “Yoko Ono aims to wow India”

Topic: Yoko Ono

This is Japan Today’s Complete Article: NEW DELHI  — Yoko Ono, the artist and widow of John Lennon, said on Thursday that India’s booming art scene would be fertile ground for her experimental work as she prepared for her first show in the country.

Ono, who is renowned for her outlandish ideas, will display multi-media pieces at 20 venues across the capital New Delhi from Friday and also hold a live performance at the weekend.

“I will be learning a lot of things from this beautiful and very grand land,” she said, as she returned to the country for the first time since a trip with her late husband in the 1970s.

The Japanese-born 78-year-old said her and Lennon, who was shot dead in New York in 1980, visited Mumbai and then traveled to a mountain ashram of a spiritual guru.

“It was an incredible experience,” she said. “John and I thought it was something like out of the Bible going up this mountain, but I remember we were told men and women could not sit together at the camp.

“John insisted we sit together.”

The Beatles famously relocated to the foothills of the Indian Himalayas in 1968 where they adopted a guru, took up meditation and enjoyed a rich song-writing period.

Ono said she didn’t know what would happen with her live show in India.

“Each live show is different depending on who is there and what feeling I get from the audience,” she said.

“I am delighted to find many women running India’s art world,” Ono, who has been a vocal feminist for decades, added.

Among her most striking live performances is a show when people are encouraged to use scissors to cut pieces off her clothes.

Ono, wearing her trademark sunglasses and tilted hat, told reporters that her art was accessible to all and that she hoped Indians would see it as part of her lifelong campaign for world peace.

“I don’t think my work is ‘cutting edge’. I just create something that comes to me as inspiration,” she said. “Right now they are bombing countries… What would Gandhi think of that?”

The Delhi exhibition, called “Our Beautiful Daughters”, which includes video, music and viewer-participation elements, is being organized by the private Vadehra Art Gallery and runs until March 10.

What is more interesting about the article above on Yoko Ono is what people are saying about her; “You’re done!  Now go back to your NY penthouse and stop pretending to be as popular as your husband!”, “What ever you do Yoko, just don’t sing!”, “OMG…glad I am not there”, “Anyone else sick of this woman?”.

Yoko Ono doesn’t have a great reputation, she’s been called a home wrecker by Lennon fans. Lennon was married to his first son’s mother when he began seeing Ono. Does she really have any talent as an artist?

Ocean has several hit songs including his monster smash “Caribbean Queen” not to mention he’s a fabulous singer so this concert should be a great one.
