Gang-rape sentencing on Friday

A Delhi court Wednesday reserved the order on sentencing the four convicted in the December 16 gang-rape case to Friday.

Additional Sessions Judge Yogesh Khanna said he would deliver the verdict on September 13.

Additional Public Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan sought death penalty for all the four who were convicted for the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern here.

The Police sought death penalty for the attackers, saying they only deserve “death sentence” for the brutal crime.

The defence counsel, however, sought leniency saying the crime was committed on the “spur of the moment and was not premeditated”.
