After prime accused in the Delhi gang rape case, Ram Singh, allegedly committed suicide in his prison cell in Tihar, family members of another accused Akshay Thakur, are worried that he will meet the same fate.

“After learning of Ram Singh’s suicide I am terrified that my son will meet the same fate,” Leelawati Devi, Thakur’s mother, said on Monday.

Akshay Thakur, the fifth accused in the gang rape of a 23-year-old paramedic in a moving bus in Delhi, was arrested by the police on December 22 last year from his home at Lahankarma village in Aurangabad district, where he had been hiding.
