Three accused in Delhi rape case refuses Test Identification Parade
December 23, 2012
Three persons accused in the Delhi gang rape on a 23-year old physiotherapy student in a moving bus are sent to a 14-day judicial custody by a Delhi-based Saket city court.
The three accused, Ram Singh, Pawan and Vinay had their faces covered and admitted to the criminal act. They have however refused to undergo Test Identification Parade (TIP).
The prosecution had not sought for an extension of their police custody and have sought their consent for a TIP. Two of the accused have outright accepted their involvement in the crime, refused for a TIP and said they are ready for any punishment, including death punishment, if awarded.
With the three refusing to undergo TIP, they will be produced before the court on January 6, 2012.
Meanwhile, two other accused members, Akshay and the juvenile Rahul (name changed) have been arrested on Friday and they have agreed to participate in the TIP. Rahul is currently in a juvenile home and his TIP would be held on Monday.
The male friend of the victim has earlier identified Mukesh who was driving the bus and hence the later was arrested.
