Google is known for celebrating anniversaries and birthdays with interactive doodles, but this is perhaps the first time that the search engine has honoured a victim.

The attack has shocked the nation and caused a wave of protests with citizens demanding the government take note of the sexual violence that women in India are subjected to on a daily basis and frame tougher laws to tackle them.
