The court also imposed a fine of Rs 81,000 each on Raju and Raju Chakka, Rs 91,000 each on Mahender and Mohd Raja and Rs 1,01,000 on Arjun respectively.

The judge said that the court should ensure that a befitting judgement should be passed, keeping in view of the atrocity of the crime, the manner in which it was committed and the state of the victim.

The DNA tests were done from the clothes of the victim that was seized from the spot in the night of the incident. The DNA profiling of the samples from the clothes matched with those of the accused, thus nailing them in the case.

The court said in a 69-page judgement that these five were the culprits who lured the woman to secluded spot close to the railway station and responsible for raping her and looting her at gunpoint.

On January 14, 2014, the Danish tourist was walking through an area of narrow lanes near Delhi's Paharganj district, which is a haven for backpackers. She stopped by these men and sought help to locate her hotel. On the pretext of helping her, the men led her to a secluded spot and raped her.
