Meanwhile, Ram Singh, one of six men accused of raping and brutally murdering the student in a moving bus in Delhi last month, plans to petition the Supreme Court to move the trial out of Delhi.
Ram Singh was the driver of the bus in which the men inflicted the horrific assault on the young student and is the main accused. His lawyer, VK Anand, said today that he will move the Supreme Court to shift the case as he believes his client will not receive a fair trial in Delhi. Mr Anand alleges that the police is 'biased' against Ram Singh. Mr Anand has sought that the trial be moved to anywhere else in the country except Uttar Pradesh, where the girl came from.
ML Sharma, the lawyer of Ram Singh's brother, Mukesh, had earlier alleged that the accused were being physically tortured by the police in jail.
The defence lawyers, while scrutinising documents submitted by the Delhi Police along with its 650-page chargesheet, have also claimed that some crucial statements are illegible and have asked for new copies.
The men are accused of gang-raping and brutally assaulting the medical student on December 16 last year and then throwing her out of the bus. The incident sparked outrage in the country and people took to the streets to demand the most stringent punishment for the accused. The young woman fought a valiant battle for her life in hospital for 13 days, but her injuries were too severe and she died in a Singapore hospital on December 29.
All the accused were arrested within days of the horrific assault.
