     NEW DELHI (AP) - Indian police say they are ready to file murder, rape and kidnapping charges against six people accused in the gang-rape and killing of a 23-year-old university student.
     New Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat says the charges against the suspects were expected to be presented to a court in south Delhi on Thursday.
     The Dec. 16 rape triggered outrage across India and sparked demands for stronger laws, tougher police action against sexual assault suspects and a sustained campaign to change society's views on women.
     Media reports say 30 witnesses have been gathered, and the charges have been detailed in a document running more than 1,000 pages.
