India's main opposition Congress party leader, Rahul Gandhi, said India is known globally as the "rape capital of the world" on Saturday as he slammed the federal government under President Narendra Modi for failing to investigate incidents of violence against women after a 23-year-old rape victim set on fire by a gang of men, which included her alleged rapists, died in a New Delhi hospital.

The Saturday attack, the second major case of violence against women in the past two weeks, has sparked public outrage in India and prompted countrywide protests.
