An Indian court has sentenced four men to death for the gang rape and murder of a student in the capital Delhi, a case which led to violent protests across India and new laws against rape.
Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Thakur and Pawan Gupta were found guilty on all counts earlier this week.
Judge Yogesh Khanna said the case fell in the rarest of rare category and rejected pleas for a lighter sentence.
The 23-year-old woman, was attacked on a bus in December and died two weeks later.
The Judge Yogesh Khanna in handing down the sentence said the attack shocked the collective conscience of India and that courts cannot turn a blind eye to such crimes.
