Two to plead not guilty to all charges in Delhi gang-rape: Lawyer
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Two of the five men accused of gang-raping and murdering a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus in New Delhi last month will plead not guilty to all charges, their lawyer said Tuesday.
"They will plead not guilty to all charges," lawyer M.L. Sharma, who says he represents Mukesh Singh and Akshay Thakur, told AFP. "Nothing has been proven yet."
Mukesh Singh, who is the brother of the bus driver Ram Singh, and Thakur are two of the five men charged with rape and murder over the Dec 16 attack on the young student, which has fuelled fierce protests across India.
A sixth accused, who is 17, will be tried in a separate court for juveniles.
