4 men found guilty of New Delhi gang rape

An Indian court on Tuesday found four men guilty of the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi last year - a crime that shocked the South Asian nation.

The sentencing hearing for the four men - Vinay Sharma, Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta and Mukesh - will take place Wednesday, the Delhi court said.

The outcry over the vicious attack convulsed India, prompting angry protests over women's treatment in Indian society and the introduction of tougher punishments for sexual abuse.

    Total Hog Wash. The Juvenile was the one who did the killing – pushing a steel rod into the woman’s abdomen and ripping out the intestines . Why is he spared ? In USA a Juveniles who Committed Crimes In Adult Capacity Are Treated As Adults. Let Me Tell You Why .The ruling party in India is a PASSIVE AL-QUEIDA supporter. Its not a political party but a lot more than that a CRIME SYNDICATE called the Congress-Dawood-Isi-Bollywood Crime Syndicate. The govt to show its solidarity with islamic terrorist minority will perform deliberate , acts of injustice and make it clear to islamists in india that they are always special . the 4th person who died in jail knew really what happened and wanted to come out in the open to tell the truth and he was murdered by the police who are stooges for dawood ibrahim the al-queda financier .

    I hope that the rampant misogyny towards women in India changes, and soon. They are more than receptacles for every deviant who likes to take by force.
    I am glad that these animals, these "men" will be punished.
