, 11:32 AM IST

New Delhi: A Delhi Court will on Monday pronounce its verdict in the 2014 Danish woman gang-rape case.

Nine men, including three juveniles, are accused of raping the 52-year-old Danish woman in central Delhi.

Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar had earlier on May 26 fixed the matter for judgement after he concluded hearing final arguments of both the Delhi Police and the defence counsel.

While the prosecution submitted that all evidence nails the accused, the defence counsel claimed that his clients were innocent.

Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal were accused of robbing and raping the Danish woman at knife-point near New Delhi railway station in January 2014 after she sought directions to her hotel in Paharganj area.

Shyam Lal died in February in Delhi’s Tihar Jail here and proceedings against him in the case were abated.

The three minors are facing proceedings before the Juvenile Justice Board in connection with the case. (ANI)
