Body of gang-rape victim returns to India

A plane carrying the body of an Indian student who died in a Singapore hospital from injuries sustained in a gang-rape landed at New Delhi's main airport on Sunday, an AFP journalist said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was at Indira Gandhi International Airport for the arrival of the specially-chartered plane when it touched down at around 4:15 am (local time), security sources said.

A convoy of 10-15 vehicles could be seen on the runway before quickly driving away, said the journalist.
