Court reviews appeals of 4 men in Delhi gang rape
NEW DELHI (AP) - Lawyers for four men sentenced to death for raping and murdering a young woman on a New Delhi bus challenged the convictions and death sentences at a High Court hearing on Tuesday.
The brutal attack in December sparked public debate and fury over chronic sexual violence faced by women in India.
"I am challenging this verdict," said A.P. Singh, who has defended all four men at various times.
The High Court said it would begin hearing prosecution arguments on Wednesday, while the defence lawyers file their appeals of the convictions and sentences.
