As the outrage across the country grew over torture and rape of a 23-year-old physiotherapist, the Delhi police detained the fifth accused in the heinous incident in a late night raid on Thursday.
Yesterday the police detained the fifth accused, named Raju, in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh.
Five days ago the girl was tortured and raped here by a gang of six men here in Delhi.
As angry protests continued for the third day on Thursday in the national capital and in other cities, investigators had doubled their efforts to nab the two accused. One accused is still at large.
According to the investigators four men, who were arrested earlier for the horrific crime that shook the nation, have, however, not shown any remorse.
