New Delhi - Police in northern India say they've arrested two men for raping a young woman for the second time in three years after she refused to withdraw a police complaint against them.

Senior police officer Sanjay Kumar Singh says the victim, in her early 20s, is in stable condition in a hospital.

The woman was first raped in 2013. Three men were arrested, and two were freed on bail pending the outcome of the trial. Singh said on Wednesday that those two raped the woman again on July 13 in a town in Haryana state.

The crime highlights the persistence of violence against women in India despite a public outcry following the 2012 gang-rape of a woman aboard a bus in New Delhi that led to stronger laws against sexual assault.
