New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) The Delhi court which Tuesday convicted four men in the Dec 16, 2012 gang rape case said the destruction of evidence by them showed an "illegal agreement" between them and they knew what they were doing.

"The offence of conspiracy stands established against the accused," the judge said, while convicting them for criminal conspiracy.
