Thousands of people protesting against the torture and gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus and demanding safety for women converged at India Gate and marched towards Rashtrapati Bhavan here on Saturday.

The rape victim is currently battling for her life in a hospital.

The protesters started arriving at the site since early morning, and were soon joined by former army chief Gen VK Singh.

They then began marching towards the high-security Rashtrapati Bhavan on Raisina Hill but were stopped by security personnel, who had put up barricades.

Police have arrested all the six accused in the case but public anger has been swelling against the incident.
