Chargesheet in gangrape case likely today
The Delhi Police is likely to file the charge sheet in the gangrape-cum-murder case of a 23-year- old girl in court here on Thursday and will seek death penalty for the accused during the trial.

A senior police official said the charge sheet is expected to be filed tomorrow against five of the six accused in the 16 December brutal gangrape and assault case of the girl, who died in a Singapore hospital on 29 December.

The sixth person apprehended in the case has claimed that he is a minor and his case will be tried in Juvenile Justice Board. A separate police report will be sent to the Board after a bone test confirms that he is a minor.

‘The chargesheet will be in e-format as we do usually,’ the official said. Sources said that the main charge sheet will comprise 50 pages and will be accompanied by hundreds of pages of annexures.

Charges of gangrape, murder, kidnapping, criminal assault and robbery among other sections of IPC will be pressed against the accused.

The prosecution during the trial would demand death penalty for the five accused.
