On December 16, 2012, a 23 year old girl was brutally raped and tortured in a moving bus and dumped on the road, by six people including a juvenile. The woman died a few days later.
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea filed by Mukesh Singh, one of the four convicts, challenging the Delhi High Court’s rejection of his claim that he was not in Delhi when the crime was committed on December 16, 2012. The high court on Wednesday said there were no grounds to interfere in the detailed and reasoned order of the trial court. Following this, Mukesh filed an appeal in the Supreme Court Thursday morning seeking an urgent hearing on his plea. The court has agreed and will hear the plea at 2:30 pm.
