Violent protests grew in India over the death of a young woman student who was raped in New Delhi in December by several men in a moving bus. She died from the injuries she received in the brutal attack resulting in severe internal injuries. She was cremated away from the public glare, but her case spoke loudly to the general population. Demonstrators are seeking action from a government that has long been at a loss as to how to deal with rape cases in Indian society. The men have been charged with murder and could face the death penalty. -- Paula Nelson ( 25 photos total)

The 23-year-old student, the focus of nationwide protests since she was brutally attacked on a bus in New Delhi two weeks ago, was cremated away from the public glare at the request of her parents.
