Five men accused in the shocking rape and killing of an Indian woman last month are expected to appear in a New Delhi court Monday to hear the charges against them.
The horrific attack on the 23-year-old woman in New Delhi prompted protests over the country's treatment of women and handling of sexual attacks. It also stirred worldwide outrage.
The suspects will appear in the Metropolitan Magistrates' Court court in the southern New Delhi district of Saket, the court said, according to CNN affiliate IBN.
That court is expected to transfer the case to a so-called "fast-track" court, several of which have been set up to expedite cases in a justice system bogged down by red tape.
Charges of murder, rape and kidnapping were filed against five of the accused men on Thursday. If convicted, they could receive the death penalty.
Could and SHOULD recieve the death penalty. No excuses. And it sounds as if they have a mordd expedient method of dealing with the criminal element than we do here.
Meant a MORE expedient method.
Oops meant *more*
