Delivering the verdict, the judge said, "I convict all of the accused. They have been found guilty of gang rape, unnatural offences, destruction of evidence and for committing the murder of the helpless victim."
The judge also recounted the fateful night of December 16 when the victim along with his friend had faced the brutality of six men including a juvenile. The judge said, "The manner in which (iron) rods were used and the injury on the body of victims rules out the possibility that these accused brought these rods only to overpower the girl."
Reading out his 237-page order, the judge also added, "...the act of inserting the rod and pulling out her internal organ after the gang-rape cannot be seen as only to facilitate the gang-rape...rather it make the act of pulling out the internal organ of the victim to kill her an intentional act."
"Besides causing external bodily harm, they inserted the rod repeatedly and pulled out an internal vital organ by hand - all these circumstances made the act of the accused an intentional one done with sole intention of causing death," added the judge of the Saket court.
"18 internal injuries to several organs make these an act done with the certainty of causing death...there were no mitigating circumstances for committing this inhuman and brutal attack on the victim," asserted the judge.
The victim, a paramedical student, was raped by six men on Dec 16, 2012. The girl along with his friend were thrown out of a moving bus. Identity of the juvenile has not been revealed yet. However other five men were -- Ram Singh, Mukesh Singh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Singh, Akshay Thakur.
All six men were arrested days after the brutal gangrape which had stormed the nation. They were lodged in Tihar jail in the national capital. However, the main accused Ram Singh later committed suicide inside the prison.
The court would hear the arguments on sentencing from 11 am on Wednesday, Sept 11 and the four men were likely to be handed quantum of punishments on the same day.
