NEW DELHI — An Indian court has sentenced to death three men who raped a photojournalist inside an abandoned textile mill in the financial hub of Mumbai last year.

Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam says he asked for the death sentence under a strict anti-rape law introduced in India last year.

The three men were found guilty last month of raping a call-center operator at the same abandoned mill. Nikam described the three as habitual offenders.

India increased penalties for sex crimes after public anger followed the fatal rape of a 23-year-old medical student in December 2012 in New Delhi. Four men were sentenced to death in the New Delhi case.

Also Friday, 24 men were sentenced to prison for raping a teenager in Kerala state in 1996.
