Delhi braveheart's statement key evidence, court to hear case daily

New Delhi: The Delhi Police team, which arrested the six accused who allegedly raped and murdered the 23-year-old Delhi braveheart, is now getting ready to file a chargesheet against them following which the case would be heard on a day-to-day basis in a fast-track court in Saket.

The police have mentioned the entire sequence of events from the time the prime accused, Ram Singh, and five others had a party at their place and then took the bus out at night just to earn a few bucks to buy more alcohol.

According to the chargesheet, the girl and her friend got into the bus at the Munirka bus stop, after which some of the accused made lewd comments and it led to an argument between the two groups. As the argument got heated, the girl and the boy were assaulted by the accused. While the boy was hit with a rod, the girl was gangraped.

After the filing of the chargesheet, the Delhi Police will try and finish the trial within a month or at the most one-and-a-half months. All the six accused in the case have been booked for dacoity, gangrape, murder and destruction of evidence.

The police have decided to ask for the maximum punishment for the accused in the case. However, one of the accused is a minor and he will be produced before a juvenile justice board and can be sent to a children's home for a maximum of three years.

For evidence, the police will be using statements of the girl and her friend, girl's ATM cards and jewellery and the medical report which says the injuries were grievous enough to cause death. They also have the CCTV footage and forensic evidence picked up from the bus.
