The crimes against the 23-year-old led to widespread protests throughout India. In 2013, four men were sentenced to death after they were convicted of rape and murder. A fifth man died in Tihar Jail. The sixth, who was under the age of 18, was given a three-year sentence. Leslee Udwin, is the director and producer of the documentary, India's Daughter.
