Danish woman's rape: Delhi court rejects accused's plea

New Delhi: A court here on Friday rejected the plea on one of the accused in the Danish woman's gang rape case for examining doctors on his potency. Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar dismissed the application filed by the counsel of Shyam Lal, who died in February in the Tihar jail here. Proceedings against him in the case were abated thereafter. The court fixed April 26 for hearing final argument of the case. Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam 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. Besides, three minors are also facing proceedings before the Juvenile Justice Board in the case. Police said all the accused are vagabonds who took the woman to an isolated spot near the Divisional Railway Officers' Club close to the railway station, took away her belongings and then raped her.
