Indian Court Upholds Death For Three Men For 2012 Delhi Gang Rape


NEW DELHI – India’s Supreme Court on Monday upheld the death penalty for three men convicted in the gang rape and murder of a young woman in Delhi in 2012, a landmark case that focused attention on violence against women.

A three-member bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra dismissed petitions filed by the men to review a 2017 order by the top court, which had confirmed the death penalty given to them by the Delhi High Court.

“There is no merit in the petitions,” said Justice Ashok Bhushan, who read out the judgment.
