Delhi gang-rape accused tried to mow down victim after dumping her

The six accused in the Delhi gang-rape case had allegedly tried to mow the girl down under the bus after dumping her in south-west Delhi but her male friend saved her from being crushed.

As the Delhi Police is set to submit its chargesheet before the trial court on Thursday, more details of the horrific crime that has shaken the nation’s conscience are tumbling out. The victim, a paramedical student, was gang-raped in the moving bus on December 16, brutally assaulted and then thrown out of the vehicle along with her male friend, a software engineer, who was also thrashed.

The sources said when the girl and her friend entered the bus, they found a total of six persons who were not passengers and were known to each other. The accused allegedly passed lewd comments at the girl to which the male friend objected and picked up an argument.

“They asked him where he was taking her and this resulted in the argument. They first assaulted the boy with iron rods and when the girl tried to protect her friend, they beat her up also. When she resisted, they got enraged and sexually assaulted her,” the sources said.

Then the accused allegedly tried to drive the bus over the girl but she was pulled aside in the nick of time by her friend.

As she was pinned down and raped, the brave young woman put up a fight, but was hopelessly outnumbered. She bit three of the men. The bite marks on the three accused men are likely to be part of the Delhi Police’s evidence in their chargesheet, the sources said..

The sources said that the 50-page chargesheet will be filed before a fast-track court on January 3. Charges of gang-rape, murder, kidnapping, criminal assault and robbery among other sections of the IPC will be pressed against five of the six accused while police would send a separate report to the Juvenile Justice Board for the trial of the 17-year-old allegedly involved in the case.

The sources said the prosecution during the trial would demand death penalty for the five accused.ncident.

Victim’s friend will be the main witness while the Singapore doctor who carried out the post-mortem and the Indian mission official who received her death certificate, would be asked to testify.
