Indian police ban rape protests in central New Delhi

Pakistani lawmakers on Tuesday elected businessman Mamnoon Hussain the 12th president of Pakistan, state PTV reported.

Indian police on Sunday banned protests in central New Delhi following a wave of violent demonstrations over the savage gang-rape of a medical student last weekend, an official statement said.

Areas close to the president's residence and the parliament have been declared off-limits to protesters, the statement said, a day after police tear-gassed, baton-charged and fired water cannon on demonstrators.
