NEW DELHI—Indian police on Thursday filed rape and murder charges against five men accused of gang-raping a woman on a Delhi bus.

The Dec. 16 attack on the woman, who later died of her injuries, has caused outrage across India and sparked demands for tough new rape laws, better police protection for women and a sustained campaign to change society’s views about women.
