2014 Danish woman rape case: HC upholds life to 5
The Delhi High Court on Monday upheld a trial court judgement which had awarded life imprisonment to five men in the 2014 Danish woman gang rape case.
 
A bench of Justice S. Muralidhar and Justice I.S. Mehta dismissed the appeals moved by the convicts -- Mahender alias Ganja, Mohammed Raja, Raju Bhajje, Arjun and Raju Chhaka.
 
They had challenged the 2016 trial court judgment which convicted them for gang rape, dacoity, kidnapping, wrongful confinement and intimidation.
 
The court said the convicts had shown the country in poor light.
 
According to the prosecution, the five, all vagabonds, had robbed and gang raped the Danish tourist at knife-point on the night of January 14, 2014 after leading her to a secluded spot close to the Divisional Railway Officers' Club near 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. One of the adult accused died at the fag end of the trial.
