Can Shame City turn Proud City?
Two days after the death of the 23-year-old gang-rape victim, Delhi Police on Monday said it has finalised around 1,000-page chargesheet in connection with the incident and plans to submit it in court on Thursday.

A senior police official said the chargesheet, which is being vetted by legal experts, has cited 30 witnesses in connection with the 16 December incident in which the physiotherapy student was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus in south Delhi. The victim died in a Singapore hospital on Saturday morning. Investigators said they will seek death penalty for the accused in the case.

Six persons, including a 17-year-old boy, was apprehended in connection with the incident, which evoked widespread outrage and anger and triggered violent protests at India Gate and Raisina Hill.

The chargesheet, to be filed in the Saket court, will detail the role of five men while mentioning that a separate report would be sent to Juvenile Justice Board for the trial of the minor boy allegedly involved in the case, the official said. The chargesheet gives details about the sequence of events, the treatment, shifting of the patient to a Singapore hospital as well as her death, the official said.

Police have slapped rape, murder and other charges against the accused.
