(The Independent) The Delhi authorities today charged five men with murdering the 23-year-old physiotherapy student who died after being gang-raped on a bus in the city earlier this month.

The men are expected to appear in a newly constituted “fast track” court where they could face the death penalty. Bone tests are being carried out on a sixth alleged attacker, who will be tried separately in a juvenile court if the results support the claim that he is 17.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, details within the charge sheet describe the youngest attacker as the most brutal, sexually assaulting her twice before further mutilating her unconscious body and suggesting she should then be thrown naked from the moving vehicle.
