Indian police keep watch at the tree where the bodies of gang rape victims were found hanging in Katra Shahadatgunj in Badaun district, Uttar Pradesh, India, on May 31, 2014. For women, heading to the fields alone raises the risk of assault, a danger that gained international attention in May with the two girls raped and hanged from a mango tree after they went to defecate outdoors in Badaun.
