Prosecutors accuse the men of raping the woman, a 20-year-old member of the lower-caste Dalit community, in the north Indian city of Rohtak last week.The men include two who were arrested for raping her in 2013 and currently out on bail as the case edged its way through India's creaking legal system, police said, while the third was also accused of the earlier attack.Members of the Dalit community, who occupy the lowest-rung of India's centuries-old social hierarchy, can find it particularly difficult to seek justice because of their poor economic status.
