Tracking the route of Nirbhaya’s terrible ordeal of rape and torture


The notorious 2012 Delhi gang-rape case involved a rape and fatal assault on the night of December 16, 2012 in South Delhi. The incident took place when a 23-year-old female physiotherapy intern (given the name of Nirbhaya by the media) was beaten, gang-raped, and tortured in a private bus in which she was travelling with her friend.

There were six others in the bus, including the driver, all of whom raped the woman and threw her and her male friend out on the road. Eleven days after the assault, she was transferred to a hospital in Singapore but died two days later as a result of her horrific injuries. 

One of the accused committed suicide in jail the next year. A juvenile accused spent three years in a juvenile home and is said to be somewhere in south India. The other four were sentenced to death and are due to be hanged on January 22, 2020. – IANS Video
