Mukesh Singh, who was one of the group of men convicted of raping and murdering the 23-year-old medical student on a bus in New Delhi, has suggested that the brutal assault was to teach the victim a lesson for being out late at night with a friend.
The victim and a male friend were on their way home after watching a movie when they accepted a lift from a private bus carrying five men and a 17-year-old boy. The men beat the friend of the victim and brutally raped the woman before throwing them off the bus. The woman suffered terrible injuries to the internal organs and died.
Four of the men were sentenced to death by hanging while the fifth defendant in the case was found dead in prison where he was being held for trial. The 17-year-old boy was also convicted of the crime and sentenced to three years in a rehabilitation home.
