India gang rape: Delhi to appoint more policewomen

4 January 2013 Last updated at 14:21 GMT

India has said more women police will be recruited soon in the capital, Delhi, after a national outcry over the gang rape of a young woman last month.

Five men have been charged with raping and murdering the 23-year-old who died of her injuries at the weekend.

The men will be tried in a fast-track court, where they could be handed the death penalty. A sixth suspect is likely to be tried in a juvenile court.
