Four held for gangrape

Four men were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly raping and brutally assaulting a 23-year-old girl in a moving bus with police saying that it will invoke attempt to murder charge against them and seek a fast-track trial for speedy justice. The bus driver Ram Singh, who along with six others, allegedly gang raped the para-medical student on Sunday night, was on Tuesday remanded to police custody for five days by a Delhi court to allow his interrogation.

The police told Metropolitan Magistrate Namrita Aggarwal that the other three arrested culprits, Ram Singh’s brother Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, an assistant gym instructor, and Pawan Gupta, a fruit seller, will be produced in court on Wednesday. Investigators said that they will seek a fast-track trial for speedy justice in the case as well as write a proposal to Union Home Ministry seeking laws for invoking death penalty for rapists.

The Delhi HC assured women lawyers that it was looking into the ‘brazen’ incident following a plea for a court-monitored probe. While Ram Singh, Sharma and Gupta were arrested from the capital, Mukesh was nabbed from Rajasthan, the police commissioner said.
