Indian activists draw placards in front of a mural painted by protesters symbolising crimes against women, one year after the Delhi gang rape, at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, India. Events across the Indian capital will mark one year since the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a moving bus, which provoked widespread outrage and led to stricter laws against sexual assault.
