An Indian police vehicle believed to be carrying the accused in a gang rape and murder case, leaves the Saket District Court, following the verdict in New Delhi on September 10, 2013. An Indian court convicted four men of the gang rape and murder of a physiotherapy student on board a moving bus in a crime that sickened the nation.

Today, a court in India convicted four men in the brutal gang rape of a young woman on a bus in New Dehli. The 23-year-old victim later died in the hospital, inciting protest over the widespread sexual abuse of women in India.

When this story broke in December, we spoke with Anu Jain, the director of operations and outreach at SAHARA. The group provides assistance to domestic violence victims in the South Asian community in Southern California. It's based in Artesia in the heart of Little India.

For more on today's verdict in India, Anu Jain joins us once again.
