Indian people hold candles to pay tribute to last year’s gang rape and murder of a young woman in New Delhi, in Ahmadabad, India, Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013. The victim, a 23-year-old physiotherapy student, was heading home with a male friend after an evening showing of the movie when six men lured them onto a private bus. With no one else in sight, they beat the man with a metal bar, raped the woman and used the bar to inflict massive internal injuries.

A 12-year-old boy was left in critical condition after he was brutally gang raped during a violent attack in India’s capital city of New Delhi, according to authorities.

The assault allegedly unfolded in the northeastern neighborhood of Seelampur on September 18, though it was not reported until Thursday, Delhi Police Deputy Commissioner Sanjay Sain said in a video statement. The boy’s family has since lodged a complaint with the Delhi Commission for Women, a statutory authority established to investigate matters regarding the security and safety of women under Delhi law.

Two of the three suspects, one of who is related to the victim, have been taken into custody.
