New Delhi: Amidst raging protests across the country against those involved in the brutal gang-rape of the 23-year-old woman, who is battling for life in a hospital, the Delhi police on Friday recovered a watch, two mobile phones, ATM card and burnt clothes of the victim, a report said.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi Police confirmed detaining a man from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the gang-rape.

The man, detained in a late night raid on Thursday, has been identified as Raju. He will be produced before the four men arrested to confirm his identity, an official said.

Also on Friday, hundreds of women and students demanding strong action against the accused marched towards Raisina Hill in central Delhi.

The savage rape and torture occurred on Sunday night, when the woman and her male friend boarded a private bus in south Delhi after watching a movie.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was brutally assaulted by six men. Her male friend, who tried to save her, was also beaten up by the rapists.

Both victims were stripped and dumped by the roadside after some 40 minutes of ordeal near the domestic airport.
