NEW DELHI - New Delhi’s police chief demanded the death penalty for rapists amid growing outrage over the gang-rape of a student on a school bus. The physiotherapy student and her male companion were brutally beaten and thrown off the vehicle after the attack, which has provoked street protests and widespread anger over the treatment of women in India. “We will seek the most severe punishment of life imprisonment  and the death sentence for the culprits,” Neeraj Kumar told reporters.
