Yet another rape has stirred the Indian capital, just a couple of months after a medical student succumbed to a brutal assault by a group of men.
According to a NDTV report, protestors turned violent after a minor was molested at school.
More than 500 people gathered at the hospital where the 7-year-old was being treated. Later they damaged property and public buses, forcing police to fire tear-gas shells to disperse them.
Seventeen people have been arrested and charged with rioting and destroying public property.
Though no formal arrests have been made, 10 men have been detained for questioning, including a security guard of the school and two male teachers.
Security has been steeped up in the capital city.
