MUMBAI, India (AP) — Police in India's financial center of Mumbai have filed charges against four men and one juvenile boy in the gang rape of a photojournalist last month, the latest attack to fuel debate about women's safety.

The Press Trust of India reported Thursday that a 600-page charge sheet filed in a magistrate's court lists details of the attack, citing 86 witnesses and DNA evidence.

The 22-year-old photojournalist was on assignment with a male colleague at an abandoned textile mill when they were attacked. Her colleague was tied up while the attackers took turns raping her.

The Mumbai charges come a little more than a week after a New Delhi court sentenced four men to death for the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a moving bus in the capital.
