The Delhi High Court on Monday upheld a trial court verdict which had awarded life imprisonment to five convicts in the sensational incident of gangrape of a Danish woman in the capital in January 2014.

A bench of Justice S. Muralidhar and Justice I. S. Mehta dismissed the appeals moved by the five convicts — Mahender alias Ganja, Mohammed Raja, Raju Bhajje, Arjun and Raju Chhaka — challenging the 2016 trial court judgment which had convicted for the crime.

The trial court had convicted them for the offences under sections 376 (D) (gang rape), 395 (dacoity), 366 (kidnapping), 342 (wrongful confinement), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (common intention) of IPC.

The Delhi court while sentencing them had said that the convicts “levelled a stigma on the face of the country.”

Rejecting the plea for a lenient punishment by counsel for the accused, the trial court had said: “They do not deserve any leniency. She had been subjected to such inhuman act continuously for five long hours, and during this period she was given beatings when she tried to save herself. Accused persons did not show any mercy when she was asking them not to rape her as she had AIDS.”

The Delhi Police had charged the accused persons with robbing and gang-raping the woman at knife point after dragging her to a deserted place near the Divisional Railway Officers’ Club which is located about a few hundred metres from the New Delhi railway station.


There were a total of nine accused, including three juveniles, in the case who were charged with gang-raping the woman, but one of the adult accused died at the fag end of the trial.
