Demonstrators are surrounded by the police at a rally in New Delhi on Dec. 27. The Indian government moved to stamp out protests that had grown steadily since the rape, but thousands still poured into the streets to vent their anger.

The deadly gang rape of a 23-year-old woman in India on Dec. 16 set off street protests and vigils, and led to the arrests of five men and one teenager.
