Indian lawyer finds gang rape evidence

Jan. 6, 2013 at 11:01 AM   |   Comments

NEW DELHI, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A public prosecutor in India says forensic evidence links the scene of a crime with the suspects in the gang rape of a 23-year-old New Delhi student.

Public prosecutor Rajiv Mohan told a judge that five suspects attempted to destroy evidence by burning their clothes, but the burnt material still showed traces of the victim's blood.

The Observer said the men charged with rape and murder will appear in court for the first time Monday since the incident three weeks ago. The men face the death penalty.

The Observer said the victim died in a Singapore hospital two weeks after the attack, which took place on a bus.

The victim's friend said she was raped for more than hour and suffered internal injuries after an assault with an iron bar.
