Four people, including the bus driver, have so far been arrested, while a hunt is ongoing for two other suspects. At least 20 men accused of raping women ran in Indian elections in the last five years, according to a think-tank report published amid growing outrage over the gang-rape of a student on a bus. The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) study was released on December 20, 2012, as political parties lined up to condemn the rape of the 23-year-old woman, which has triggered widespread protests against how women are treated in India.
