Reports indicate that a man accused in the fatal gang rape of a woman on a New Delhi bus in December was beaten so badly in jail that his arm was broken.

The attack followed the death last month of another defendant, whose lifeless body was found in his cell, which he shared with 3 other inmates. Authorities said Ram Singh committed suicide by hanging himself. His father said the man had been raped in prison by other inmates.

Singh called for the defendants to be moved to a jail where they could be better protected.

The men are charged with rape and murder for the fatal attack on a young woman in a moving bus in New Delhi in December that sparked protests demanding the country do more to protect its women.

It is also reported that the number of foreign tourists arriving in India dropped by 25% during the first 3 months of this year, largely because of fears about the risk of sexual assault. The number of female tourists fell by 35% compared with the same period last year
