Gang-rape suspects were beaten by police, claims lawyer

A DEFENCE lawyer acting for the men charged with the gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey (23) in Delhi claimed that his clients were beaten by police and forced to make false confessions.

There were also reports that the youngest alleged killer, a 17-year-old, had been attacked by inmates at a juvenile detention centre.

The lawyer yesterday suggested his defence would cast doubt on the victim's character. All five suspects could face the death penalty if convicted. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
