The 22-year-old
victim of a gang rape in Mumbai, India issued a defiant statement
Sunday, saying “rape is not the end of life” as police arrested the last
of five suspects in the case.

"Rape Is Not The End Of Life," Says Gang Sex Attack Victim

officials escort an accused, with the head covered with black cloth, in
the gang rape of a photojournalist after producing him before a court
in Mumbai, India, Sunday
.
The photojournalist said
that she was anxious to return to work after Thursday night’s attack, in
which five men repeatedly raped her while her male colleague was beaten
and tied up.
Police arrested the fifth suspect Sunday in New Delhi, the capital, after rounding up the other four in Mumbai.
“We will file a comprehensive charge sheet soon,” Mumbai’s police commissioner, Satyapal Singh, said.
He
added that police have enough evidence to prosecute the suspects,
including the victim’s testimony and medical samples taken at the
hospital after the assault.

In
a statement from her hospital bed the victim said: “Rape is not the end
of life. I want strictest punishment for all the accused and want to
join duty as early as possible.”
In accordance with local law, the
woman has not been named. The five suspects — including two picked up
overnight and two arrested earlier — are likely to face prosecution
under a strict new law that sets the maximum prison term for rape at 20
years.
Police said the suspects targeted the photojournalist as
she and the male colleague were taking pictures on a magazine assignment
in a Mumbai neighborhood where luxury malls and condominiums stand
alongside sprawling slums and abandoned mills.
