Three Men Accused of Delhi Rape to Plead Not Guilty

While the entire India mourns the death of the 23 years old gang rape victim, it is learnty that three men accused of Delhi rape are not going to plead guilty.

The three include Ram Singh, the driver of the bus, his brother Mukesh and Akshay Singh.

Interestingly, the lawyer representing three of the men charged with the gang rape and murder of a medical student aboard a moving bus in New Delhi has blamed the victims for the assault, saying he has never heard of a “respected lady” being raped in India.

Sharma said the male companion of the murdered 23- year-old was “wholly responsible” for the incident as the unmarried couple should not have been on the streets at night.

In the meanwhile, the attack on the woman and her friend, which led to her death almost two weeks later, forced the government to address demands for swifter justice, safer streets and heavier sentences in rape cases. India’s top court on Jan. 4 began considering demands for faster trials and the suspension of lawmakers accused of sex crimes.
