Five facing New Delhi bus murder charge

Police are expected to formally charge five of six suspects with murder over the death of 23-year-old woman gang-raped on a bus in New Delhi, India.

The sixth suspect is under 18 and a juvenile, but a police officer said a bone test had been ordered to confirm his age.

Under Indian law a juvenile cannot be prosecuted for murder.

New Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said today that a charge sheet on the case would be filed in court on Thursday.

The physiotherapy student died in a Singapore hospital where she had been sent for emergency treatment after the crime in India’s capital on December 16.
