The driver of the bus in which a young Indian woman was gang-raped appears to have hanged himself in his cell. But the man was not on suicide watch, and his lawyer suspects foul play.
The trial of five men charged with the gang-rape and murder of a woman in New Delhi began today. The case has triggered nationwide protests, and debate on crime against women and anti-rape laws.
Six men have been charged with gang-raping a woman in New Delhi last month. Resolving the question of whether one of them is a minor, as the suspect insists, could delay prosecution.
