(Newser) – A fifth suspect has been arrested in connection with Sunday's gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in Delhi, reports the BBC. Police aren't revealing much information about the suspect as they are still trying to determine whether he is a minor. But the Times of India says his name is Raju and he was found north of Delhi in Budaun, Uttar Pradesh. There are also unconfirmed reports that the sixth rapist has been picked up by police in Uttar Pradesh.

Of the four arrested already, one was reportedly a fruit seller, another a gym instructor, and one a bus driver. The woman has undergone two rounds of surgery (one to remove a gangrenous intestine) since Sunday and remains in critical condition. Hundreds of angry protestors marched on the residence of the country's president today, but were turned away by security. "They do nothing to protect us, and when we want justice, they say we need permission to enter the president's house. Such a heinous crime has occurred, and they expect us to seek permission to protest," one protestor tells Indian Express.
