The police will submit its 1,000-page chargesheet at the magistrate´s court in Saket on Thursday, following which it will be transferred to the fast-track court.

Last month, the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court had said that all cases related to crimes against women in the city would be handled by fast-track courts.

Three other fast-track courts will start functioning from Dwarka, Rohini and Tis Hazari from January 3, said reports.

The post-mortem report of the Delhi gang rape victim is also scheduled to reach Delhi from Singapore on Wednesday.
