New Delhi: Chief Justice of India (CJI) Altamas Kabir will inaugurate a fast-track court here on Wednesday, which will hear the case of the 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim.

The fast-track court set up in Saket is among the four that are being set up to handle all cases related to crime against women.

The other fast-track courts will function at Dwarka, Rohini and Tis Hazari. All these courts will start functioning from tomorrow.

Delhi Police will submit its chargesheet in the magistrate court in Saket on Thursday. The case will then be moved to the fast-track court.

Delhi Police had earlier invoked murder charges against the six men allegedly involved in the gang-rape of the 23-year-old girl in a moving bus after she died in a Singapore hospital.

Amid outpouring of anger and grief in the country, the body of the gang-rape victim was flown to New Delhi from Singapore early on Sunday morning and cremated within hours.

The girl was gang-raped and brutally assaulted allegedly by six men in a moving bus in south Delhi on December 16 night.
