Report: India rape case suspect commits suicide


By CNN Staff

(CNN) — One of the men accused of raping and fatally beating a woman in a gang assault on a New Delhi bus has committed suicide, CNN affiliate IBN reported early Monday.

Ram Singh hung himself with his clothes in his jail cell, the affiliate said, citing the director general of prisons.

The horrific attack on the 23-year-old woman in New Delhi on December 16 prompted angry protests over the country’s treatment of women and handling of sexual attacks.

The victim of the attack died in a Singapore hospital in late December. Her male companion survived with a broken leg.
