Verdicts in Delhi gang-rape trial due Sept 10: Judge
NEW DELHI (AFP) - The trial of four adult suspects accused of the fatal gang-rape of a student on a New Delhi bus in December will conclude on September 10, the presiding judge Yogesh Khanna said on Tuesday.
Dismissing pleas for more time by defence lawyers, the judge told the court: "You've delayed this trial far enough. My judgement will come on the 10th."
The first verdict in the case was delivered on Saturday in a juvenile court where a teenager, aged 17 at the time of the assault, was found guilty and sentenced to three years in a detention centre.
The four adult suspects face the death-penalty if convicted of the most serious charges against them which include murder, gang-rape and theft.
