Five accused plead not guilty in India gang rape

Sapa-AP | 02 February, 2013 13:44
Schoolgirls pray to pay homage to a gang-rape victim who was assaulted in New Delhi, at a school in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad in this December 29, 2012 file photo.

Five men have pleaded not guilty after being formally indicted in a special court on 13 charges, including rape and murder, in the fatal gang rape of a woman in a New Delhi bus in December.

One of the men's lawyers says the men signed statements in the fast-track court Saturday saying they were innocent. The lawyer cannot be identified under a gag order imposed by the court.

The court will begin hearing the evidence of witnesses on Tuesday.
