Such was the brutality of the crime that a rusted iron rod was inserted into her and pulled out with so much force that the act brought out her intestines also.
  8. 8. Horror of 16/12 The torture went on for an hour or so as the bus made several rounds of a posh locality, unnoticed and unsuspected by the ‘alert’ Delhi Police.
