Indian police have made four more arrests in connection with the rape of an elderly nun in West Bengal state.

Police said the four men were all Bangladeshi and were being held in the northern state of Punjab. It takes the number of arrests in the case to six.

Six alleged attackers were caught on CCTV as they burgled the convent before the 74-year-old woman was raped.

The incident caused outrage in India and led to street protests in many cities across the country.

However, it is still not clear whether the men who have been arrested so far were those caught on camera.
