Four men were formally charged Thursday in a Mumbai court over the gang rape of a young photographer in the city — a case that reignited anger about women’s safety across India.

Crime branch officers filed a chargesheet laying out their case against the men at the Esplanade Court in south Mumbai over the attack on August 22.

A fifth suspect, who was under 18 at the time of the offence, is expected to be charged separately in a juvenile court.
