One of the four men convicted in December 16 gang-rape case called out his innocence as a police van he was riding in pulled into the courthouse where he and three other men are expected to be sentenced on Wednesday.

It was not clear which man was shouting, since his face was obscured behind heavy metal mesh, but he repeatedly shouted "I am innocent! I am innocent! I am innocent" as the van drove past a scrum of reporters.

A court convicted all four men on Tuesday in the gang rape of the woman on a moving New Delhi bus, a brutal crime that galvanized public anger over the sexual violence faced by Indian women. The men's lawyers have long said they are innocent.
