Five suspects to be charged in New Delhi gang rape case

  • Five men in India are due to be charged with the murder of a medical student who was gang raped on a New Delhi bus.

    The 23-year-old victim passed away over the weekend from injuries sustained during the December 16 attack.

    The incident sparked national outrage.

    In response, the government has announced measures intended to make New Delhi safer for women.

    If convicted, the five may face the death penalty, which is seldom carried out in India.

    A sixth suspect is reported to be under the age of 18 and therefore a juvenile. Police have ordered a bone test to confirm his age.
