A policeman who was injured during violent protests over the gang rape of a woman in the Indian capital Delhi has died in hospital.

Subhash Tomar, 47, was injured in clashes at the weekend in which more than 100 people, including at least 60 officers, were injured.

The rape, which happened on a bus, has left the woman in a critical condition and caused outrage in India.

Indian PM Manmohan Singh has appealed for calm in the city.

Mr Singh said his government would “make all possible efforts to ensure security and safety to all women”.

The victim continues to be on life support and in a critical condition in a city hospital, doctors say.

Six people, including the bus driver, have already been arrested in connection with the incident.

Mr Tomar, a constable with the city police, was injured during the protests at India Gate in the heart of the capital on Sunday.

Violence erupted as demonstrators tried to break through police barricades to march on President Pranab Mukherjee’s palace.

Mr Tomar suffered a heart attack and had been on life support in hospital early on Tuesday.

“The protesters pelted stones at Mr Tomar, he was unconscious for two days and today he died,” police spokesman Rajan Bhagat told AFP news agency.

Police had arrested eight people, including an activist of a newly formed anti-corruption political party, in connection with “the injuries caused to Mr Tomar”.

A relative of Mr Tomar said he was attacked by a mob.

“My cousin was always out on streets maintaining law and order. The mob attacked him for no reason. They just killed him,” said Ajay Tomar.

The authorities have kept roads and metro stations shut since Monday to stop protesters, leading to massive traffic jams.

The government has tried to halt the rising anger by announcing a series of measures intended to make Delhi safer for women.

These include more police night patrols, checks on bus drivers and their assistants, and the banning of buses with tinted windows or curtains.

Two policemen have also been suspended in connection with the incident, which happened on 16 December.

But the protesters say the government’s pledge to seek life sentences for the attackers is not enough – many are calling for the death penalty.

The 23-year-old victim and her friend had been to watch a film when they boarded the bus in the Munirka area intending to travel to Dwarka in south-west Delhi.

Police said she was raped for nearly an hour, both she and her companion were beaten with iron bars and thrown out of the moving bus into a Delhi street.

Ajmal Kasab at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal railway station in Mumbai, Maharashtra, in this Nov. 26, 2008 file photo.

November 20, 2012            11:26 pm

Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai that left 166 dead, was hanged Wednesday morning in Pune, Indian officials said.

Mr. Kasab, 25, was executed at 7:30 a.m. in Pune’s Yerwada jail, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde told reporters Wednesday morning. The hanging followed a rejection of Mr. Kasab’s mercy plea on Nov. 6 by the Indian president, Pranab Mukherjee.

Mr. Kasab, who is Pakistani, was convicted in May 2010 by a trial court in Mumbai of murder, conspiracy and waging war against India, and was sentenced to death. He appealed to the Maharashtra High Court, which upheld the sentence, and then to the Supreme Court, which rejected the appeal in August.

“His execution is a tribute to the victims” of the 2008 attacks, R.R. Patil, the home minister of Maharashtra, told I.B.N. news.

A press release from the government of India said:

The petition for clemency filed by condemned prisoner Mohammed Ajmal Mohammed Amir Kasab was rejected by the President on 5th November, 2012. The sentence was executed today at 7.30 a.m. at Yeravada Central Prison, Yeravada, Pune.

Pranab Mukherjee resigned as India’s finance minister to vie for the presidency, prompting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take charge of the portfolio as he tries to revive a faltering economy.

Singh will head the ministry until Mukherjee’s successor is appointed, Pankaj Pachauri, communications adviser to the prime minister’s office, said in New Delhi today. Singh was finance minister in the 1990s, sparking an economic turnaround that now faces one of its sternest tests. Mukherjee, the ruling Congress party’s nominee for the presidential poll in July, quit earlier in the day.

Mukherjee departs with the government projecting record borrowing to plug its budget deficit and as political gridlock hampers efforts to spur investment and ease bottlenecks stoking elevated inflation. The veteran politician’s attempt yesterday to halt a slump in the rupee by allowing foreigners to buy more bonds fizzled, leaving the currency close to its weakest level against the dollar as his three-year tenure ends.

Singh’s decision to refrain from appointing a successor immediately implies he “wants to keep the portfolio with himself for some time to push stalled reforms and lift the slowing economy in order to boost confidence” said Satish Misra, an analyst at the New Delhi-based Observer Research Foundation.

The rupee, which touched a record low of 57.3275 per dollar on June 22, was little changed today at 57.035 per dollar at the close in Mumbai. It is down about 21 percent in the past year, the worst slide among major Asian currencies. Aside from India’s deteriorating outlook, the rupee has also been hurt by Europe’s debt crisis, which has sapped demand for emerging-market assets.

Singh Steps In

Singh, 79, was finance minister for five years from 1991, when India was on the brink of defaulting on some of its overseas debt. In his first two months in the job, he devalued the rupee, tackled government monopolies, cut import tariffs and tax rates, and let foreign companies take majority stakes in sectors including automobiles and pharmaceuticals.

Liberalization spurred faster growth, including an 8.4 percent expansion in the 12 months ended March 2011, before a paralysis in policy making contributed to a slowdown to 5.3 percent last quarter from a year earlier, a nine-year low.

The government’s recent setbacks include the suspension in December of plans to allow foreign companies such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to open supermarkets after an ally of the ruling coalition objected. India has also foregone investment in the pension and insurance industries in recent months.

IKEA, Coca-Cola

Swedish furniture retailer IKEA last week eased some of the gloom, saying it wants to open stores in India and may invest as much as 1.5 billion euros ($1.9 billion). Coca-Cola Co. said today the company and its local partners plan to spend $5 billion in the country by 2020.

Mukherjee, 76, entered parliament in 1969 after working as a teacher and journalist. He had stints in charge of India’s foreign, defense, commerce and steel ministries and ran a closed economy as finance minister from 1982 to 1984.

“Given the challenging global environment during his tenure, Mukherjee has done a decent job,” said Vishnu Varathan, an economist at Mizuho Corporate Bank Ltd. in Singapore. “A lot more could have been done, but one has to be mindful of political processes involved which make ground-breaking changes a lot tougher.”

Mukherjee’s resignation may lead to a cabinet reshuffle as Singh tries to revitalize his development agenda to cut poverty.

Possible Replacements

Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram, Commerce Minister Anand Sharma, Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council Chakravarthy Rangarajan and Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh are all probable candidates to replace Mukherjee, Business Standard newspaper reported June 15.

The government projects record borrowing of 5.69 trillion rupees ($100 billion) in the year through March 2013. It aims to narrow the budget gap to 5.1 percent of gross domestic product this fiscal year, from 5.76 percent in 2011-2012.

Inflation accelerated to 7.55 percent in May, and the central bank signaled this month that price pressures are crimping scope to cut interest rates.

Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s have said they may strip Asia’s third-largest economy of its investment-grade rating. The nation has struggled to pare spending on a subsidy program ranging from diesel to fertilizers.

‘Messy Combination’

“It’s a very messy combination of things that is going on in the economy,” said Robert Prior-Wandesforde, Singapore-based director of Asian economics at Credit Suisse Group AG. The next finance minister will need to improve public finances by raising fuel prices and push forward with other reforms, such as introducing a goods and services tax, he said.

The finance ministry and Reserve Bank of India yesterday boosted the amount of government bonds foreign investors can purchase by $5 billion to $20 billion to support the rupee.

The poll for president, India’s highest constitutional office, is due July 19. Elected legislators of state assemblies and the federal parliament will vote to select the successor to Pratibha Devisingh Patil.

While largely a ceremonial post, the president is the supreme commander of the armed forces and oversees the creation of a government after general elections, which are due by 2014.
