Delhi gangrape: How the convicts reacted
New Delhi, Sept 11: As soon as the judge of a fast-track court here held the four men accused of raping and brutally assaulting a 23-year-old medical student guilty, each of the culprits reacted differently, said one report.

While Pawan Gupta broke down, Vinay Sharma was left in a state of shock. The third, Mukesh Singh, was heard saying that they would have to face the consequences for what they did while the fourth looked unaffected.

The quantum of punishment will be pronounced on Wednesday

The court will pronounce the quantum of punishment on Wednesday. The family of the woman, who died later in a Singapore hospital, welcomed the judgment and sought death penalty for the four. It had expressed sorrow after the fifth accused, a juvenile at the time of the crime, was sent to the reform centre by a juvenile court. The sixth, the driver of the bus in which the horrific crime took place in the night of December 16 last year, was found hanging in Tihar Jail in March.

On Tuesday, outrage was seen outside the Saket court where the four men were tried. Protesters were seen giving slogans and demanding death penalty for the convicts. A massive protest had rocked the capital in the wake of the gangrape and the authorities were forces to take initiative for tougher laws to deal with sexual crimes.
