India Gang-Rape Accused Appear In Court

Five men accused of the gang rape and murder of an Indian student appeared in court on Monday to hear charges against them, after two of them offered evidence possibly in return for a lighter sentence in the case, which is at the center of a global outcry.

The five men, along with a teenager, are accused of raping the 23-year-old physiotherapy student on a moving bus in New Delhi. She died two weeks later on December 28 in a Singapore hospital.
