Tihar Jail
New Delhi, March 28: Even though it is unlikely that there is any light at the end of the tunnel, Delhi gangrape accused Vinay Sharma is 'concentrating on his career'. To aid him in his preparation for the Indian Air Force recruitment test he has asked the judge to 'go easy' on him. Sharma was quoted as saying that he 'deserves leniency so he can concentrate on his studies and his career'.

His other demands include that a tutor be arranged at Tihar Jail for him for his upcoming test on April 7th. He has also asked for books that he will require for the test.

Sharma has appealed for the same through AP Singh to special judge Yogesh Khanna. "He wants to appear for the written test as well as other tests, which are mandatory for the recruitment of group C civilian lower divisional clerks in the IAF... The court should direct the jail authorities to provide him with tuition and books required for the examinations" Singh told the court.

"My client has got a call letter to appear for an interview with the Indian Air Force. A tutor or guide be provided to him. The test will include general knowledge. He will have a job and will lead a good life ahead. He will earn well. He is the only breadwinner in the family. He will serve the Indian Air Force," Sharma's counsel said.

The Delhi police recently opposed the plea of two of the accused for 'use of Hindi language during the trial proceedings' as they said they do not understand English. However, the request was turned down as it was considered a 'delaying tactic'.

"The applications have been filed after 63 witnesses have been examined, so it is purely a delaying tactic on the part of the accused and nothing more," Special Public Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan told a Special Court.
