In May, a Supreme Court bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra and consisting of Justices R Banumathi and Ashok Bhushan, had upheld the High Court’s order of death sentence to the four convicts – Akshay, Pawan, Vinay Sharma and Mukesh. A fifth accused, Ram Singh, allegedly committed suicide in Tihar Jail in March in 2013 and the sixth, a convicted juvenile was sentenced three years of punishment in a reform home, and released in 2015.
The six men had assaulted the woman and her male friend in a moving bus as it drove through the streets of New Delhi. She was thrown out of the bus – so grievously injured that her insides were spilling out – along with her male friend near the airport. A fortnight later, on December 29, 2012, she succumbed in a Singapore hospital.
