The court is expected to hear opening arguments Thursday as the rape and murder trial gets underway.

A sixth suspect claims to be a juvenile and is expected to be tried in a juvenile court.

Weeks of protests following the attack last month prompted the government to set up the special court to deal swiftly with crimes against women.
