Delhi gang-rape: Juvenile Justice Board to pronounce verdict on July 25

New Delhi, July 11 (ANI): The Juvenile Justice Board on Thursday reserved its verdict on the role of a minor accused in the December 16 Delhi gang-rape case.

The Juvenile Justice Board, which was due to pronounce its verdict today, deferred its decision for July 25.

During the inquiry earlier, the juvenile had denied all charges against him and claimed that he was not a participant in the horrendous crime.

While the juvenile faced inquiry before the Juvenile Justice Board, the four adult accused are being tried before a fast track court in Saket.

Ram Singh, one of the key accused, was found hanging in Tihar Jail in March and the proceedings against him stand abated.

Besides the juvenile, four adult accused facing trials in this case are Mukesh, Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur. They have been charged with gangrape, murder, criminal conspiracy, unnatural sex and robbery besides other sections of the IPC.

A 23-year-old medical student was raped, beaten and tortured by six men on a moving bus in South Delhi area on December 16 last year.

The victim later died of internal injuries in a Singapore hospital two weeks later. (ANI)
