All the four accused in the gangrape have been declared guilty of all the charges that were filed against them, by the Saket court. The fast-track court in Delhi has convicted all four men for the rape and murder of a 23-year-old paramedical student.
One of the accused, Ram Singh was found dead in Tihar Jail
The arguments on the sentencing of the four convicts will take place on Wednesday. The court has held the four men guilty of 13 offences including gangrape, unnatural offence, murder, dacoity, conspiracy, kidnapping and destruction of evidence.
The defense lawyer claimed that the verdict was politically motivated in the interest of public. "This verdict is politically motivated for the interest of the people. We will have to go to High Court. This is not a fair trial," Singh said. He added that they will challenge the verdict in a higher court.
During the trial, Ram Singh was found dead in Tihar Jail on March 11 and court proceedings against him stand abated. The minor, who was 17-and-half years old at the time of the incident and turned 18 during the trial, was held guilty by the Juvenile Justice Board and sent to three years in a correctional home, the maximum term permissible under the Juvenile Justice Act.
