A special fast-track court on Thursday will start hearing arguments against the five accused in the Delhi gang rape case to frame charges.
The trial will be held behind closed doors.
The court will also take up an application filed by the lawyer of one of the accused, Vinay, who claims to be a juvenile. The court will decide on whether a bone marrow test needs to be conducted on him to determine his age.
The special fast-track court was inaugurated by the chief justice of India a few weeks ago to take up this case and others involving crime against women.
