The Delhi Police on Thursday filed a 1,000-page strong chargesheet in connection with the December 16, 2012 Delhi gang-rape case in the Metropolitan Magistrate's Court at Saket here.

After this formality, the case will be transferred to a fast-track court, which will hear it on a day-to-day trial basis.

A senior police official had earlier hinted that the chargesheet is expected to be filed against five of the six accused in the December 16 brutal gang-rape and assault case of the girl, who died in a Singapore hospital on December 29.

The sixth person apprehended in the case has claimed that he is a minor and his case will be tried in Juvenile Justice Board. A separate police report will be sent to the Board after a bone test confirms that he is a minor.

Charges of gang rape, murder, kidnapping, criminal assault and robbery among other sections of IPC have been pressed against the accused.

The prosecution during the trial is expected to demand death penalty for the five accused in connection with ghastly incident, which stirred the conscience of the nation.

The sequence of events, the treatment, shifting of the patient to a Singapore hospital as well as her death, have all been mentioned along with statements of 30 witnesses in the chargesheet. (ANI)
