Danish woman’s rape: Delhi court reserves verdict
New Delhi, May 25 (IANS) A court here on Wednesday set June 6 for delivering its verdict in the 2014 Danish woman’s gang rape case.
Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar reserved the order after defence counsel and prosecution concluded their final argument.
Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal were accused of robbing and raping the Danish woman at knife-point near New Delhi railway station in January 2014 after she sought directions to her hotel in Paharganj in central Delhi.
Shyam Lal died in February in the Tihar jail here and proceedings against him in the case were abated.
Three minors are also facing proceedings before the Juvenile Justice Board in the case.
Police said all the accused are vagabonds who took the woman to an isolated spot near the Divisional Railway Officers’ Club close to the railway station, took away her belongings and then raped her.
