Delhi gangrape

One of the six accused in the December 16 gangrape and murder of a 23-year-old woman has pleaded before the Supreme Court to shift the trial outside Delhi, saying that a free-and-fair hearing is not possible here because of the strong public sentiment against him.

Mukesh, who has been charged with murder, gangrape and unnatural offences, submitted in his petition that in view of regular agitation, police and judicial officials are under pressure to pass an order according to the demand of the agitators and a fair hearing is not possible.
